Lapis lazuli beaded necklace, 'Singing the Blues' (Thailand)

The myriad blues of lapis lazuli come together harmoniously in this necklace from Sareeyakarn of Thailand. The artisan strings polished discs and orbs of the gemstone on braided black cord, and accents them with 950 silver Karen hill tribe beads. A sterling silver hook clasp, flanked by additional lapis beads, completes the design.
