Goldstone Coins Necklace & Earrings (LS107)
Goldstone is man made from smelted Gypsum, Feldspar and Copper filings (it is the copper which gives it the sparkle).
Here I've used 20mm round goldstone coins knotted with 6mm round stones and 12mm blue & orangey-gold larger stones.
The necklace is 21" (540mm) long and fastens with a gold vermeil Karen Hill Tribe silver toggle clasp. This is 24ct gold on Karen Hill Tribe silver - which has a much higher pure silver content than sterling.
I've also made a pair of earrings using two of the stones used in the necklace: these are on gold-plated copper.
A pretty - and inexpensive - set to brighten up any outfit.
