I recently offered to make a necklace to donate for a charity silent auction. Since individual tastes can vary so much, I decided to keep it simple and elegant. This strung bead in necklace just alternates 12mm black agate beads with 4mm sterling silver round beads. I finished off the piece using a large sterling silver lobster claw clasp.
The necklace measures 20 inches, so it is a little longer than choker length. The stones beads give it a nice weight. In the photos the beads just show up as black, but there are some subtle color variations and a few stripe striations. Hopefully, this piece of jewelry does well and raises a few dollars for a worthy cause!
