Red Sponge Coral Necklace

When I was using black onyx in a previous necklace I thought it would look nice with red.  So when I saw these red sponge coral heishe beads the result was this necklace and pendant.

The removable pendant was made using a red sponge coral donut with the pendant bale made using some carnelian seed beads and vermeil rondelles.  The toggle clasp is also vermeil.  

Vermeil is .925 sterling silver which has had several layers of gold (in this case 24K) bonded onto it so you get the look of gold without the price tag.
