This type of simple yet exotic jewelry is the original reason I got into jewelry design. I love the elemental richness of large beads of carnelian, jasper, silver, and carved bone or coral. Their organic, natural colorings are subtle and easy to wear with many of today's clothes, from basic jeans to dressy black evening outfits. Carved beads are from China, jasper and bone probably also - Bali sterling silver, and I made the PMC fine silver beads in the necklace. Beautifully made lampwork in the bracelet is by Joanne Zekowski.
