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.

Payment can be made via e-transfer (preferably) or PayPal.   The item will be shipped in a week's time from the payment.    Shipping within Canada is $3; to the US, $10 (subject to change).

 

Further contact

It is often difficult to get the photos to do the necklace justice especially re saturation of colour.    If you wish to see the necklace in better light, you are welcome to schedule a Zoom visit with me, or simply email for more information.
