The beads I used on this necklace is aventurine. Adventurine is quite soft, therefore bruises easily. But they are pretty and warm to the skin. :-)
I was at a bead show in Sacramento last year and I was like a kid at a candy store. I bought the orange-gray vintage beads at the show and have added pale colored swarovski crystals and silver metal beads for this creation.
This necklace is made of yellowish-brown glass beads. The beads were given to me by my mother-in-law who'd been collecting beads for years and years.
