Coral Statement Necklaces...
One of the issues of the other necklaces, which might have contributed to them breaking is that they were strung too tightly and didn't have spacer beads. Without the spacer beads, the necklaces were stiff and didn't drape as nicely as they could. So, between the coral sticks, I used some "ruby quartz crystal" beads that I've been hoarding. I've also heard them called, "red velvet" beads, but they are just a faceted leaded glass crystal that has a deep red color that deepens in the shadows and sparkles in the light.
I'm quite pleased with the result! Even better, so is the customer!
