I'm always on the lookout for unusual materials to incorporate into my designs. With these gorgeous volcanic ash beads, I've found just the material! The energy of the Pacific Northwest and the power of Mother Nature are captured in these truly unique beads. Western Oregon artist Jim Clarke uses volcanic ash from Mount St. Helens to handcraft these unique treasures. Made from enamel and ash with a copper core.
This necklace was designed with volcanic ash beads, faceted amethyst, glass, and 14k gold-filled accents. It is finished with a 14k gold-filled toggle clasp, creating a look that is timeless.
