||This necklace came together as a result of the
happy coincidence of finding Karen's gorgeous, weathered looking glass bead and
some Mali dig beads with the same colors. (The African bead traders call them
dig beads because people find them when digging.) The dig beads are quite
weathered and old, so I accented them with new beads softened by frosting. The
three old carnelians in the center are aged examples of man's early and
persistent love affair with beads.
