The center trade bead in this design is rare and unusual. I wanted it to be the focus in a necklace. I also used silver beads (drops) from a Nigerian bracelet I took apart that I have had for some time. The colors of the Roman glass add to the overall effect that this piece looks ancient “unearthed” You could layer with a few other shorties. Wow, what a good look!
