Trinket #335 - Petrolated Tourmaline Necklace

I decided today to play "Grab Bag Trinket", meaning that I reached into a supply bag and pulled out two things to use together. In this case, it was a packet of faceted tourmaline beads and a pre-fab necklace. I cut out about six inches of excess length from the chain, wired on the beads in a simple sort of 1920s arrangement, and called it a day.

Not sure if you can see it in the photo, but the colors of this stone are amazing - they look just like the sun shining onto parking lot puddles. You know, the ones with the thin film of oil on the tops? Fascinating!

Did I mention - ONLY 30 DAYS TO GO?!
