A partially flattened three dimensional figure 8? Not sure how to describe these opaque dusty rose colored beads that were made in West Germany in the mid-20th century, but they are smooth and soothing. Combined with translucent rose quartz ovals the size of arborio rice and set between faceted fine silver from Thailand, this 17 1/4" necklace is definately one of a kind. But I do have coordinated earrings. email Julie@carnelianknoll.com if you want photos.
