'Coiled Dragon' Agate and Yellow Opal Necklace (LS63)
Two strands of yellow opal chips are twisted together with 10mm round yellowy-green dragonvein agate beads, each knotted onto mustard coloured silk.
The overall colour is a yellowy-olive or even khaki which looks great against darker greens, especially emerald and bottle green. Or any biscuity colour as well as white.
The three strands can be untwisted and worn loose, although I designed it to be twisted. You have have the strands as tightly twisted as you like, just twist each end before fastening.
Because twisting shortens the necklace (it is 16.5" or 420mm when fully twisted) I've added a 2" extension chain with a round dragonvein jasper bead dangle.
The clasp is a gold vermeil trigger clasp and all other metal parts are also gold vermeil (gold on sterling silver).
