I made this one for the Terri Windling benefit auction a few months back (and was pleased to see it fetch a decent donation, too!)











Auction description: Necklace strung with many and varied beads and snake vertebrae in fall or perhaps desert sunset colors (depending on how you choose to see these things.)  Approximately 21" with off-center hand-made copper clasp, plus pendant bottle.  The beads include several stones (amber, tiger eye, and something red that looks a bit like pressed rose petals), glass, metal, and wood.  The pendant includes a slice of antler as a stop, and a corked bottle for you to fill with your own wishes or dreams.

Very unique design.  I'm not surprised it fetched a good sum, it's wonderful.
