A gift from a friend yesterday, simply when I noticed it in a small pile of garage sale leftovers and made some generic comment that it was cool. His response: "you like that, take it?!" ;-) :-) :-) AND IN FACT, I don't think I've ever seen anything else quite like it, and have been somewhat marveling over it ever since.
It is mostly the greenish veined stone (could it be jade?) roughly triangular beads interspersed with smaller whitish cylindrical (seems like stone too, ever so slight graining to them too) beads, also two slightly irridescent faceted glass beads (one more tiny further one on the 'dangle stone' end) all with various small gold/silvertone 'fancy beads' and lots of tiny black faceted beads and tubes inbetween. (those might be glass?) All are strung on a self-coily length of thin springy wire of some sort (maybe 20" or so total length if it was stretched all the way out, which I'm not gonna try to do to it...) with one more of the green stones as a 'bangle' on one end and a tiny fancy metal bead as bangle on the other end.
Hard to photograph, and I fully admit probably looking rather strange seen here on my hairy wrist <lol> I hope the pics might still otherwise show enough of it to all y'all actual jewelry experts here on CW?!! I'd just LOVE to find out (anything?!) more about what this thing really is?!!! HELP, Y'ALL?!!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
