One of the pleasures of making jewelry is getting to see and touch so many different kinds of beads from all over the world. The beautiful deep blue beads in this necklace were handcrafted in Java, Indonesia. They are described as variegated, meaning the colors vary slightly from bead to bead; some are a gorgeous cobalt blue, some are teal, with a lovely green tinge to them. They also range in size from 10-13mm, although the ones I chose for this necklace are on the larger end of the range and fairly uniform. They have a slightly rustic character, not exactly alike nor precisely round like machine made beads, and with occasional slight pits or rough spots on the surface.

The smaller brass beads (12mm) on the necklace were handcrafted in Ghana, using the centuries old wax casting process, in which molten brass is poured into wax molds made for each bead.The larger bicone shaped brass beads are vintage, with a beautiful, natural patina. These came from a large ethnic necklace belonging to my mother and may also be African in origin.

The beads were strung on dark brown round leather cord. The necklace is 26" long and closes with an antiqued brass hook clasp. The necklace can be shortened if desired.
