Can I just say that I LOVE this piece!
I really enjoy combining beads made form different materials in different shapes and sizes and this necklace does that.
The focus bead is burnt caramel colored ceramic. The small circular beads are boulder opal a beautiful gemstone that blends brown, gold and blue together as if gently mixed on a pallet with the tip of a paint brush so that each color maintains it's individuality eve while playing with the others.
The flat beads are horn gathered from african cows that were killed for their meat and then the horn made into beads.
