The spiked beads on this necklace are called dagger beads. They are side drilled and lay beautifully. The necklace is stung on silk thread with silk knots next to the dagger beads.
Necklace with Earrings – This necklace is 23 inches in diameter. The lobster claw is nickel free. The earrings are made with nickel free iron head pins and ear wires and are 2.0 inches long from the ear wire.
Most metal spacers, bead caps and charms are also nickel free. Beads on my jewelry are made from a variety of material, stone, glass, Chinese crystals, cracked glass, agates, glass pearls, seed beads, metal, wood, polymer clay, acrylic or any beading material I think looks interesting.
