The oval beads are an unusual type of agate, called bamboo agate. They have variations in their color, from cream to tans to grays and browns, with leaf-like patterns within the beads. I took care to arrange the stones from lighter in the center, to darker towards the clasp.
The accents are opal-colored genuine Swarovski crystals, set off by silver-plated and lead-free pewter spacer beads. It is finished with Moroccan and Botswana agate beads and a twist barrel lead-free pewter clasp. It is about 18 inches long, and weighs 1.5 ounces.
This necklace is the centerpiece of a matched set -- see also the bracelet and earrings in this section. The bamboo agate beads were carefully selected, such that the separate pieces of the set will all "go" with each other. The price reflected here is FOR THE COMPLETE SET. If you order the necklace, the bracelet and earrings are automatically included.
Due to the unique nature of this type of agate, this is a "One of a Kind" design.
