|Yemeni coral and ancient agates|

Shortly after acquiring the coral I got a strand of ancient agates from an African trader. The agate strand had a smattering of coral beads mixed in, which gave me the idea for merging the two strands. For a while they were combined into the two necklaces shown. Since then they have been remodeled a number of times and I no longer own all the agates.
In 2009 our bead society visited the Picard Museum and that got me infatuated with Venetian trade beads. But the coral and agates were my "first loves".
