Handmade Rhodolite Garnet Bead Necklace (made by Angela Kosnar) from Tanzania [./akjewel1210/akj12101a.JPG] Handmade Rhodolite Garnet Bead Necklace (made by Angela Kosnar) from Tanzania [./akjewel1210/akj12101b.JPG] Handmade Rhodolite Garnet Bead Necklace (made by Angela Kosnar) from Tanzania [./akjewel1210/akj12101c.JPG] Handmade Rhodolite Garnet Bead Necklace (made by Angela Kosnar) from Tanzania [./akjewel1210/akj12101d.JPG] Handmade Rhodolite Garnet Bead Necklace (made by Angela Kosnar) from Tanzania [./akjewel1210/akj12101e.JPG]

Handmade Rhodolite Garnet Bead Necklace (made by Angela Kosnar)

Locality: Tanzania

Specimen Size: (thumbnail)


A striking and distinctive necklace featuring hundreds of deep purplish-red, rough tumbled trapezohedral crystals of Tanzanian Rhodolite Garnet which are strung onto a single piece of thread and hand-crafted into this unique piece of jewelry. The piece was made by Angela Kosnar over the course of about 18 hours, creating what is a very three-dimensional necklace that is truly eye-catching. This is no ordinary bead necklace, as the process by which it was made is difficult to master. The sterling silver chain that connects the ends of the beads allows the necklace to be adjustable between 16 and 19 inches. We have searched for years to try to find more of these particular Rhodolite beads, and they do not seem to be available on the market, so Angela is unable to even make a similar piece at this point in time. A wonderful gift idea for somebody who appreciates one-of-a-kind custom jewelry pieces.
