All of the things that I adore in this piece. First the beautiful mud from Elaine Ray ceramic bead artist here in Nc. I love Elaine's multi colored beads. I love to pick her bead first and move color around it. I love to pull from it and mix different textures and elements. This necklace has the earth, metal, the sparkle of rhinestones and the corrosive patina. I will hate to part with this one.
