Zebra Stone Necklaces

I picked up some black glass beads at Michaels this weekend, thinking that I could finish a zebra stone necklace.  Once I got into it however, I ended up making two!

Zebra stone is a pretty semi-precious gemstone that can have a striated pattern in black and white.

The first necklace I made, with the black glass beads, is a simple strung necklace on waxed black linen cord, lobster clasp.

For the second necklace I made, I wanted something that was fairly simple and long that would look good with any variety of more brightly colored shirts.  Here I am wearing it with my “zebra” hair.

Yes I am going quite gray at the age of 31.  I haven’t been dyeing it for about four years now.  I actually like how it’s coming in, in streaks.  A lot of people compliment me on my hair, and most don’t seem to realize that it’s natural!  I’m quite comfortable with it, and I actually don’t mind people thinking I might be older than I really am.

To make this necklace, I took “silver” wire and threaded it through the stones, and looped them on either side to attach them to the chain.  For the pendant, I took a larger zebra stone and wrapped some more wire around it, and looped it on one end.  I finished it with a toggle clasp.

I don’t wear jewelry to work, but I hope I can wear this one out soon!
