|Robin Mollicone uses antique Italian hand made beads from the 1800's. She threads each bead one-by-one -- yes, she has the patience of a monk and we all love her the more for it because she is willing to make this beautiful, delicate and precious jewelry. I am sure Robin is enlightened when she is threading beads! This piece is a 36" single color strand with 14k gold beads (three of them) and a 14k gold clasp. You can wear this piece as a single strand or wrap it twice for a shorter look. These cobalt beads are a vibrant and strong blue - this is one of my favorites from Robin, these beads together with the gold clasp are gorgeous!
