Looks how shiny the agate stone on the top...! I really love it...!
The tiny glass bead is so cute.....
There is a green flower looks in it...
It's c
ombining two colors of dark purple and olive green...

I like the "white beads" too but I don't know the name... Maybe white coral stone... :)

The clasp is also lovely...

Some java beads & green agate stone from "Manik Jawa" & others, leaf metal beads from "Smartyhands", a pair clasp from "Studio Manik", artistic wire & dyed malachite stone from "Almas Enterprises", swarowski crystal & metal bead from others.

Mallory is a
very talented artisan...
She's create beautifull lampworks..... and also making jewelry too...
You can see her wonderfull works on her etsy "Rosebud's Lampwork Bead"...

Because I can't making beads like her, so I adding wire to this "java bead" as a focal bead for her... I hope she like it... :)

I also making clasp for her...from artistic wire (non tarnish brass) with dyed malachite stone...

She can use this as clasp or a connector...
