This is made of Czech glass beads, copper beads and a jade centerpiece. You can't really tell here, but the turtle is looking over it's shoulder smiling at you  Smiley I used a stretchy cord to string it so it would fall very casually and another thing you can't tell is how brilliantly it catches the light. The little glass beads after the white opaque beads are clear on one side and gold filled on the other.

It's my first time using crimp beads and findings (both are sterling silver.)

I'm pretty content with how it came out.  Cool Sorry I'm so long winded... Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone Smiley I get all my beads from a store downtown DC called Beadazzled. Their website is www.beadazzled.net . It's a great supplier with even better staff and service.
