Here's some lovely raspberry pink rhodonite! (I have another rhodonite necklace here, by the way.) Rhodonite is often found with black streaks and spots, but these beads are a pretty uniform pink. They are cut into faceted rounds, 6mmm in diameter. I strung them with Bali sterling silver twisted coil beads, and finished with a sterling silver lobster clasp. The finished length is 18.5 inches, with a weight of 1.2 oz.
I made matching earrings by hanging the beads from Bali sterling silver dangles. (The headpins and French hooks used are also sterling silver.) The total bead dangle length is about 2 inches. The earrings weigh 0.3 oz.
