Our Artbeads Designer Gemstone Blends feature beautiful gemstone beads in coordinated colors. They make designing something wonderful a breeze. Bonnie Ogilvie from Dakota Stones created this necklace with our Resilience Gemstone Blend and cotton tassel cord for a fun knotted look completed with a tassel at the center. The gemstone beads match the cotton cord perfectly.
