This very pretty necklace was created of 12x6mm magnesite oval rice beads*, 6mm turquoise round beads and small brass spacers. Framing the pendant are gold-colored spacers made of a lead-free zinc alloy. The necklace is 20 inches end to end, including the handmade spiral hook clasp.
*It occurred to me to wonder in what other shapes rice is found, but let's not go into that here.
I am rushing through this listing because my new supply of trade beads arrived today, and I can hardly wait to get my hands on them. And that is on top of having received yesterday a packet of glass-domed charms for bracelets. I have already made three of them into bracelets which I will be listing this evening. I am so blessed! What a windfall.
Thanks for dropping by. All these goodies are just for you, you know.
