Few designers work with trade beads and ancient artifacts like Richard Lindsay does. He sold me this necklace of 400 year old Carnelian beads several years ago. They were so beautiful and I was able to restring the beads to create two necklaces. I added my own twist to the design. I have included in my necklaces for sale a similar design using Kyanite rondells.
“In ancient times, Carnelian was believed to give the wearer courage in battle and to help timid speakers become both eloquent and bold.” from Richard Simmons THE BOOK OF STONES.
