Aglaia is the name of one of the three Graces, from Greek mythology. The name means "beauty" or "splendor" and I thought that was a fitting name for this brilliantly colored ndebele rope. The ndebele rope, also known as tubular herringbone, is woven with Japanese and Czech glass beads in deep dark magenta and bright orange-lined citrine. Because the beads are two different sizes, the rope twists and turns for its entire length. These two colors play off each other wonderfully, and the transparency of the orange beads gives the whole piece a beautiful glow.

The rope is very versatile, too! It's a continuous loop (no clasp to fiddle with). Wear it wrapped around your neck once or twice, loop it through a donut focal to make a wonderful necklace for a pendant, or wrap it around your wrist several times to make a bracelet.

I don't often make earrings, but the colors in the ndebele rope are so unusual that it's unlikely you'd ever find matching earrings; and that just won't do! The earrings each feature a section of ndebele rope attached to a surgical steel earwire with copper accents.

This set will arrive in a beautiful gift box, perfect for giving as a present to that special someone, even if it's yourself!
