The Dzi beads in this necklace are so unique and have a fun story behind them - they're inspired by ancient beads with a mystical history. I paired them with eye-catching Czech glass beauties for a look full of sensational style.

Dzi beads from Dakota Stones combine perfectly with Czech glass beads in this earthy necklace. The Dzi beads display cool swirling patterns that are perfectly accented by the outstanding drop shapes, rondelles and flat briolettes. Cynthia completed the design with a bold TierraCast clasp, one of her favorites. Find more inspiration for using clasps in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
