Black Onyx bead necklace

Double string black onyx necklace

I made a double string black onyx necklace  for myself. I saw one of my mom’s friends wearing a similar necklace . It was very pretty and quite traditional. I wanted one to go with my saree too.

I used 0.015″ gauge wire to thread the onyx beads. I put in antique gold bead  spacers to bring out the contrast. I also finished this with gold filled clasps. I bought the beads and the findings at 3 beads and a button beadstore. This is my absolute favourite store to buy beads and the folks who work here are very  friendly and helpful. I go in there from time to time to browse through their collection of beaded jewelry.
