These carnelian beads are awesome! I wanted to mix them with the onyx beads! These are the real deal. My step mom sent me these beads and they are so pretty! I made two pair! Carnelian is a powerful stone, a stone of protection and strength!
The black metal findings were thicker than sterling silver so I needed to make 2 pair. The smaller beads went on easier with the sterling silver findings.
These would be good for Halloween season! They are great protection stones (carnelian and onyx), so that means they are great for all seasons!
