I just love Carnelian - it is my favorite natural gemstone, in addition to the fact that it is believed to bring serenity and acceptance to your life.  The central section of carnelian beads is connected to woven beaded ropes using larger beads than I normally work with.  These beads are copper and brown colors, complimenting the variety of tones in the carnelian beads.
