Day 12: Black and Red Necklace with Black Glass, Rubies, Garnet, Corals, and Hematite

I made this necklace as a present for my sister-in-law. This necklace is the heaviest one I made. This piece made me fall in love with rubies and garnets. The garnet seems like a black crystal but when you take a closer look at it, it is reddish in color. I don't know but I'm usually drawn to garnets these days. I already have more appreciation with rubies. Before, I associate rubies with boring fine jewelry. Now, I see a ruby on costume jewelry as a vibrant and a lively touch of red.
