I have a love/hate relationship with donut-shaped pendants.  I love how they look, and they’re just a bit different.  Unfortunately, they’re also not usually drilled, since they already have the opening in the middle, and that means I need to make a bail.  I can make bails, but for some reason I hate doing them.  So, I end up with lots of neat donut beads that sit around waiting to be used.

I’ve had this particular pendant for a few years, bought out of a mixed pendant bin at my local beading store.  It’s a streaky agate of some sort, in varying shades of brown and green.  It has markings etched into it, which look to me vaguely Asian without actually being text.  I decided to pair it with some aragonite teardrops, which have lots of creamy swirls through them.  They remind me of caramels and I just want to eat them up!  I’m including two photos, one of the whole piece and a close-up of the pendant.  Enjoy!
