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.
