These are some kind of ceramic bead accented with small swirled sterling bead and the large one (I wish you could see it close up) is an india silver bead.
This is all sterling, square and circular beads accented with a silver folded box, so fun!
I got these resin beads off a necklace Craig brought home to me after his grandmother died. They made a fine little bracelet.
The black, flat, circular beads are some kind of wood or died bone, but I love how they are uneven when strung. The accent bead is died green torquoise!
On the bracelet, the big beads are recycled glass. The necklace has semi-precious stones, both the small discs and the whitish round beads. It is accented with a sterling and silver bead and a little red coral bead at the clasp.
Hopefully there will be more to come, if I can scrape up some more bead money!
