Ginette chose three tube tree agate gemstones to form the focal point of her necklace. She did not use black cord for the rest of the necklace. She instead used small black and green seed beads interspaced with metal beads to complete the design.

Tree agate is a lovely gemstone with green veining. It is a good choice if one likes green and wants a change from the completely green stones such as aventurine or jade. The green can vary but the kind here is what I would call "hunter green". As many gemstone beads don't look alike, Ginette took advantage of that fact and used a darker piece bracketed with two lighter ones in her design.
