Redwood - Pendant and Beaded Necklace

This necklace is called Redwood. The pendant is a carnelian stone in a silver setting. It measures 1 1/2 inches plus the bail. The necklace is made up of mahogany obsidian melon beads, 6 mm red aventurine beads, wooden beads, copper seed beads and a copper loop and toggle closure.

I like the coloring in this necklace and the mixture of textures and materials. Although I mostly do beadweaving I like to do some stringing from time to time. I like the freedom of this and the mix and match of materials - it's fun.
