Dragon Vein
Agate./etc. necklaces

I have become fascinated with agate beads.   The designs in them are unique — no two identical — and often stunning. They also come in amazingly rich colours.   My favourites are dragon-vein agates, but there are many other kinds — fire, druzy, sakara, cherry and plum blossom, and scenic dendric agates; sea sediment; ocean crystal; kambaba jasper; turquoise gold copper bornite stone; chrysanthemum and nipomo coral; and more.  The necklace lengths are most often made from agates, jade and/or rock crystal; but sometimes amethyst, sapphire, tourmaline, topaz, obsidian, howlite, rose quartz, etc.   

The necklaces are double threaded and knotted (between beads) by hand.   I use nylon beading thread and silver bails with glass seed beads under them to prevent the bail from fraying the thread.   The longer necklaces are 27-28 inches long (not counting the main pendant bead) and are endless (i.e. no clasp as they can go over the head).   The shorter ones are 20-2 inches long (again not counting the main pendant bead) and are closed with clasps.   The pendant beads are generally 40-60mm on the longer necklaces and 30-40mm on the shorter ones.

Matching earrings may be available in 'Necklace Other' in the top menu.

WARNING: although the stones are fairly strong, they can break.   I recommend that you store them separately from other jewellry, or at least alone in a bag.   Most can be washed with soap and water, scrubbing with a soft toothbrush if need be.

Magikal Knots
Tatted Necklaces/etc.

Tatting is an old-fashioned way of making lace pretty much a forgotten art these days, as it takes a lot of time to do.   I mostly use pure cotton thread and glass beads, but occasionlly silk thread and gemstones.   The necklaces are chokers.    I also have snoods (for covering hair buns) as shown below and snowflakes Xmas ornaments.
