Byzantine and Bali Mix

Do you remember the feeling you got when you were a kid and mom and dad took you to the fair? Candy Apples and Cotton Candy, all in one day! That's what I felt like yesterday afternoon; I was a kid in a candy shop! I visited a shop in downtown Athens that stocks precious and semi-precious stones. I picked up quite a few treasures with freshwater pearls, amethyst and onyx amongst the mix. I can't wait to create new pieces using these beautiful stones!
This piece is a Byzantine link chain - as promised.
I've used white metal Bali style accent beads and I wove the chain using silver plated brass rings. The clasp is hand made, and is also silver plated base metal.
