GOLDFISH NECKLACE. The crocheted necklace is made of both metallic core and matte e-beads, 6 mm Swarovski crystals, Size 8 orange beads, and Czech pressed glass floral and leaf beads. All were hand strung to satisfy my strange brain’s desire for “randomness” and crocheted on heavy cotton cord. Bali bead caps and sterling toggle clasp round out the basic necklace. I should mention I crocheted this with a 3 beads per round so this is much smaller diameter piece than I’ve made in the past.
The tassel is made on 19 strand beading wire woven through the necklace and crimped. The three art beads were worked in randomly and all ends were crimped for finishing. $189.00

This bead is so large it could be a display bead or – if you are like me and love big beads – worn as a pendant. I deliberately aimed for a more oval shape on the icing so it would hang a bit closer to the chest if worn but this is a darling bead on the display… a real conversation starter! Bead is 1″ high and 1 1/4″ wide. $27
Note, the red base is a dark red… and more red to the human eye than my camera picks up.
The colors of the chakra can be used for meditation or in yogic practices. It is believed that – by concentrating on a color corresponding to a specific body part, healing can be achieved. The colors and their representations in the body are:
Red = Base Chakra
Orange = Sacral Chakra
Yellow = Solar Plexis Chakra
Green = Heart Chakra
Pale Blue = Throat Chakra
Dark Blue = Third Eye Chakra
Amethyst = Crown Chakra
While these beads were made with meditative intent, they can also serve as just a happy rainbow of colors on your bracelet or necklace.
