Gypsy Magic Necklace

There is something mystical and magical about the oversized beaded bead. The rich metallic luster of the Chinese Crystal creates a lure of gypsy magic to the design. Swags of antique copper chain with additional Chinese Crystals in Copper and Metallic Plum just add to the interest. The chains collect to one side in a filigree finding with a hook and eye clasp.

Karla Schafer, Auntie's Beads Designer
