Grandma B's Necklace

Ta dah! Here is the finished product of the necklace that I have been working on for my Grandma B. If anyone knows her please don't tell her it will be a surprise. I ended up adding some more beads to it. All in all, it is made with handmade beaded beads, fossilized coral, smokey quartz, freshwater pearls, and gold. By far it is my most favorite piece to date. I have been wearing it all day and already have received 3 compliments by complete strangers.

Your Nana is going to LOVE it! I love the patterns in the stones, is that Moss Agathe? It's so lovely, with all its little spots. You did a great job on the Peyote tubes too.

Thank you both Carol Dean and Jewels. I can't wait to give it to her. I will be going to see her this weekend for her 80th birthday party,so it should be fun.

I STILL love it!
