Description

This eye-catching tribal necklace features Tibetan Dzi beads, purple amethyst, carnelian, green aventurine, and sterling silver beads and components. There are five cylindrically shaped Dzi beads included here. They are agate with a deep honey-brown background and a lighter-tone wave patterning. The brown shading varies a bit from bead and bead, and each bead has its own individual "personality." The waves may symbolize either water or mountain peaks. I thought in terms of mountain peaks when I designed the necklace.

To enhance and adorn these special focals, I first chose the deep purple amethyst, which I bought at the same time as the Dzi beads. They seemed to call to each other in the bead store. I see the amethyst color as representing the high flanks of the mountain peaks. Later, I added the green aventurine (8mm, 6mm, 4mm) to represent the lower flanks, and to create a color bridge between the purple and the honey brown. To reinforce the warmth of the Dzi, I chose carnelian rounds (4mm). As a matter of note, the amethyst beads are rondelle shaped, whereas the aventurine and carnelian are round.

Also included in this special necklace are sterling silver round beads (4mm, 3mm), sterling silver petalled bead caps, high-quality 49-strand beading wire, a sterling "S" hook for the clasp, and sterling finishing components. In addition, I used tiny Japanese seed beads inside the Dzi beads to keep them more balanced on the beading wire. Of course, the seed beads are hidden, but do their job nicely.

The necklace is designed around the five Dzi beads, with the lightest of the five used as the central focal. Each Dzi bead is nestled between 4mm sterling rounds. The central focal is bordered on either side by the following:
• A bead group with three amethyst rondelles between a split pair of bead-capped green aventurine rounds (8mm)
• Another Dzi bead
• A repeat of the first bead group
• A trio of smaller (6mm) green aventurine rounds
• Ten carnelian rounds bordered with sterling rounds (3mm), with another sterling round (2mm) in the middle of the group
• A quartet of small (4mm) green aventurine rounds
• Two heavy sterling crimps under sterling crimp covers, another 3mm sterling bead, and a silver wire guard

The crimps hold secure the beading wire, and the wire guards help to reduce abrasion of the wire. The clasp completes the strand, with a solid jump-ring on one end and the "S" hook on the other.

The length of this beautiful tribal necklace is approximately 21 inches. Measurement of the Dzi beads (about 1 1/8 inch) and clasp (5/8 of an inch) is shown in my photos for this listing.

This lovely Dzi bead tribal necklace with amethyst, carnelian, green aventurine, and sterling silver was handmade by me with thought, care, and best wishes for its destined wearer. It comes in an eco-friendly kraft box, wrapped and ready for gift giving to someone special—including yourself! It would make a special gift for anyone who loves earthy, meaningful jewelry and enjoys the mountains, wherever those mountain might be!

About Dzi beads
Dzi beads are considered protective amulets and talismans against the "evil eye." They have been made for thousands of years and may have originated in ancient Persia. "Dzi" is the transliteration of a Tibetan word which means clarity, shine, splendor, and brightness. Traditionally, these beads were made from agate, and the older the bead was, the better (and more expensive), as it was believed to accrue more and more power over time.

About the Gemstones

Carnelian -
A type of chalcedony and member of the quartz family, carnelian is a rich and regal-looking gemstone that has been used for jewelry since ancient times. Throughout history, it has been considered a protective talisman to dispel fear and help build courage. Carnelian is also associated with August as a birthstone and with the astrological sign of Virgo.

Amethyst -
A member of the quartz family, amethyst is traditionally considered a protective, talismanic stone. The name amethyst comes from the Greek word "amethusos," which means "not drunk." The gemstone is associated with the crown chakra, and is the birthstone for February. Amethysts are actually crystals and often have inclusions, clouding, and other interesting elements to them, as well as various shadings of their distinctive purple color.

Green Adventurine -
Also a member of the quartz family, green adventurine is traditionally believed to be a stone of friendship and love, and is associated with the heart chakra.
