This simple but elegant two-strand necklace by the editor of Beadwork magazine originated with artist Jana Roberts Benzon’s intricately patterned polymer clay beads. The leafy motifs in both the beads and the silver bail carry all the rich, green mystery of the Amazon. Olive metallic seed beads, potato pearls, black diamond crystal cubes, and sterling silver clasp with a peridot inlay complete the necklace.
