A friend from the office asked if I'd design some jewelry to match the color of her eyes.  I went hunting for chalcendony, and came back with blue lace agate.  I was expecting to make a simple pair of earrings, but she liked the stone so much she asked if I'd make a simple, elegant choker-length necklace for her.  I also brought in a handful of possible focal pieces, and she wanted to use the striking blue tear-drop bead.

To string this piece I used tiny heshi style freshwater pearls to space the agate.  I also added a very simple, yet elegant sterling silver box clasp with a slide closure.  I finished the piece with the requested blue tear-drop bead and included a matching pair of earrings with the same blue glass.

So simply pretty! I love the combination of the light blue lace with the vividly dark focal. Something about it seems so fairy tale---like a mermaid's necklace. Lovely!

thanks!  My friend has a very "Jackie O / Grace Kelly" style.  She worn this piece to the office last week with a robin's eye blue button down and a cute little swing jacket.  She looked so classic.
