Susan is featured in the Summer issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry's Summer issue, 2017.
OOAK The toggle clasp is base metal, in a bronze finish and ample with the toggle at about 1 1/2" in size.
There is a wonderful large lampwork bead (purchased in Tucson at the Gem Show many years ago) as the focus in bone, black, burnt sienna and "yellow turquoise" color. The matte finish matches the Lava oval beads. Other beads include: Lava stone, bone, golden Druzy and Yellow Turquoise on waxed linen cord (with toggle clasp).
The necklace measures approximately 24" in length with a closed toggle clasp. The Tibetan metal focal measures approximately 1" x 1/2". The barrel Lampwork bead is 1" in length.
This is definitely a statement necklace with the size and weight to prove it.

"My love of beads began 17 years ago. I am fascinated by the human story they tell, the nature of the beads, the hands that created and traded them.
This has led me from my early discovery of the vast history available and the opportunity to learn the skills required to create beautiful jewelry myself. I later opened the first bead store in Galena, Illinois and taught more than 20,000 women (and a few men) to bead.
As my knowledge grew I wanted to share it further and wrote five books about beading for the craft industry. Along the way I have made many dear friends and have been fortunate to be inspired by many leading designers. You can visit me here at OneHealingStone on Etsy or on Facebook at my jewelry designers group: Crafting Jewelry Inspiration." - Susan Ray
