I used two cuts of this gorgeous blue lace agate gemstone and two different shapes of fresh water pearls for this lovely strand necklace. The blue lace agate displays the lighter blue and white swirling bands against the darker blue, which has a hint of lavender.
The round beads are also faceted which picks up more light. I have set large round white freshwater pearls in between as well as natural "stick" shaped pearls.
This necklace is strung on jeweler's 49 strand stainless steel wire. It is 18 inches long.
The clasp is hand forged in my studio from solid sterling silver. It is a large, easy to fasten, hook and eye closure.
