Giraffe Agate Bead Necklace on Cord no.2.with Two Sliding Knots.
Agate beads have been etched in this way for about 4,000 years but this is modern. The white lines are made by making a paste out of a certain herb and I'm sorry I cannot remember which! The paste is painted onto the stone bead and then the bead is heated and the lines appear for ever. This bead is so smooth and lovely. I am very fond of Giraffes and search for this kind of bead.
