Red Malachite semi-precious stones

I have just started using semi-precious stones and I received a large amount of them through the post this week. I purchased a couple of packs of Red Malachite freeform slabs and you can see by the differences in colour how they can vary from one to the other. However there were 2 distinct themes going on in the colouring and I decided to make a couple of sets with the 2 themes. The first 3 items are made with a lighter version of the red malachite with a cream stripe running through them. The first item I made was a necklace which I have called Daisy Chain necklace. The chain and toggle clasp are silver plated and the daisy beads although look metal are actually plastic, so the necklace is not too heavy.
