Sacred Vessel Necklace

I have had this focal bead in my stash for a couple of years.  It is by Larry Scott, my favorite lamp work bead artist.  Yesterday morning I was putting away my swag from the last Bead & Button show and taking stock to see what I wanted to look for this year.  When I pulled out this strand I knew immediately that they would go perfectly with this bead.  The large oval beads are fossil coral from Indonesia.  I'm not sure what the small gray ones are, I am really terrible about keeping track of what kind of semi-precious stones I buy, only what colors.  I am going to try and fix that, and I have a couple of field guides coming to help me identify what I have.

I used a fish clasp and silver Soft Flex.
