This stunning set features 3 lampwork beads by Generations Lampwork in the center. Surrounding those are luscious pale pink and yellow freshwater pearls, Pink Opal, Citrine and Rose Quartz. The neck has Yellow Jade, Citrine and Rose quartz as well as Pink Opals. It measures 17 inches and has a 14K gold filled clasp with 2 pink Opal dangles and pearls. The dangle earrings are included and are made with the same materials. As with all my designs this OOAK (is one of a kind) and contains only high quality seed beads and fine Austrian Swarovski crystals purchased locally and chosen by hand. All wire work is done by me using only hand tools. This set (and lots more) can be seen and/or purchased at .

A note about gold filled wire:
Gold filled wire is very different from "gold plated". 14KT gold-filled wire has 100 times more 14KT gold in it than plated gold. This wire is created by bonding a sheet of 14KT gold to a core of brass with extreme heat and pressure. The end result is a 14KT gold tube totally encasing the brass core. This gives us a lovely strong wire that never tarnishes. The gold surface never wears off, cracks, or peels like gold plate does. It is used to create designs meant for a lifetime.
