Close-up of medallion. For some reason I couldn't find a Saint Camber medallion anywhere, so I had to settle for St. Michael, my favorite kick-butt archangel.
Reverse side of medallion, with a "guardian angel and child" image.
Large round beads are genuine amber, and the smaller oval beads appear to be amber colored glass. I scavenged an amber "worry beads" bracelet to get the round amber beads and the oddly shaped bead right above the pendant. The necklace is strung on silk cord made for stringing pearls and beads. The clasp is a modern one, since I couldn't find any that looked suitably period to me , and I wasn't sure I had enough beads to make it long enough to simply slip over my head. At least this style of clasp neatly conceals and protects the knots at both ends of the silk cord. (And it's hidden under my hair anyway.) I have enough of the smaller oval beads left over to make a matching bracelet, and I've got a Celtic Cross charm that might go on it when I get around to making it, but I'll have to find a suitable clasp for that first, since I've discovered that the stretchy clear elastic cord I bought for making bracelets won't hold a knot in it, even if you make a square knot exactly as pictured in the instructions and dab clear nail polish on it afterwards to secure it as the instructions suggest. *sigh*
