I've had these greyish earth looking stones (a jasper? - I sadly don't remember) for quite a while, but wasn't inspired until this week as to what to do with them. Then, two necklaces just popped out with the same tones, but different characters. The first is dramatic with a large resin "ivory" bead as its focal, large taupe carnelian and carved black onyx beads.
This necklace is more casual and uses a beautiful shade of bronze in the murano glass beads. Its focal is one of the fine silver pendants I made recently and patinaed. I used bronze glass seed beads to carry the color around the neck.
