12 mm Spinel* gemstones are encircled by caps of vintage etched antique silver-plated pewter to form these lovely berries.  The stems and racemes are created with raspberry colored Miyuki shimmer beads; the ear wires are black Niobium with sterling silver balls.  *Spinel is a gemstone in its own right, but is often referred to in the jewelry trade as "black onyx."  Traditionally, onyx is an agate with straight bands rather than curved ones, so I consider the use of the term "black onyx" incorrect and intentionally misleading, and choose to use correct terminology.
