The Big Apple

The glass bead in this necklace was made by Lisa Joy Sachs of Sachs Design based in Maryland. This is the coolest glass bead I've ever seen and it is a one of a kind. I have accentuated the color combinations by stringing it with facetted peridot briolettes and teal blue chalcedony. There is a sterling silver headpin holding the bead, but all other metal is 14k gold. This is a fun and whimsical look, and the scale is a tad chunkier than my usual style. The bead is about 1inch x 7/8 inch. It is strung with a 14k lobster claw clasp to about 18.5 inches in length on a durable synthetic fiber that moves like silk but doesn't stretch, shred or fray like silk.
