a medley in grey: pewter, mother of pearl, pearls, zebra marble,  coral, quartz, some weird pyrite, river stone.

different light, way different colors...

yellow and bronzey, sweet little bee pendant, nice vintage crystal,
quartz pendant, queen(crown)bee, tea with honey.

hand made glass, bronze, bird's eggs in a nest,
tagua nut, glass pearls,locks and keys...

I'm calling this a 'dainty cluster'.

Love all the natural beads: water buffalo horn, agate, pearl, shell
myrrh, wood, mother of pearl, heat-treated coral, turquoise, bronze,
tagua nut, hand-pressed glass, blackstone, on Greek goat leather.
 Completely adjustable length.

Raku and Japanese ribbons.

Sexy drops down the back of the neck helps
 you find the fabulous EASY magnetic clasp.

of pearl with that big beautiful heat-treated
coral on a sweet little blue strand
