Well...that went so well I thought I'd try again. This piece has an option of two toggle closures. It has two strands of Serpentine, a light and dark green, as well as a strand of small sterling beads. The main strand consists of 3 clear hollow glass beads that have added glass frit in wonderful hues of amber, wine and cobalt. The four lentil beads on each side are in transparent shades of steel green and the palest amber. They have been decorated with either Fine silver mesh or a stringer of dark silver plum glass which lends a metallic look. This is one of my favorite glasses as the more it's heated the more colors come through. Colors like purple, blue, bronze,and hints of green, all in a metallic palate. The spacers between the hollow beads were made from Fine Silver clay and then fired in the kiln. There are also Freshwater Pearls in copper and champagne.
