Necklace for My Sister

I’ve not made much jewelry lately. In fact, this piece is over a month old, but I never got down to posting it. It is intended as a Christmas present for my sister, and I want to make another one (with different beads, but I’ve yet to decide what I want besides rose quartz) for my mother.

The green beads are aventurine and the brown ones are jasper. I didn’t know there’s brown jasper until I foudn these. I bought them at a lovely shop that sells all kinds of gemstone beads. I can’t remember what the dolphin is made of. Since my husband photographed it, I don’t know what side of the dolphin is visible. It is blue on one side and metallic (I’m thinking silver) on the other.
