Gingered Toffee Crunch SOLD

I've been salivating lately over crunchy caramelized sugar. Another favorite flavor these days is ginger. It's probably time for me to make candy!

I founded these agate beads some time ago and like other beautiful beads, they often remain on the shelf until I am inspired with a winning blend of arrangement. There are days I'll lay out a pattern of beads but if it doesn't strike me with just the right blend then back on the shelf we go until voila, it's just right. A few weeks ago I think I stumbled across a winning blend! The final arrangement included natural agate, smokey quartz crystal, Swarovski crystals, creamy coin pearls, vintage bronze accents and filigree connectors. This confection is 27.5 inches long reflecting shades of golden brown, creamy white, and translucent quartz. Good enough to eat!
