My Marrakech necklace and earrings have been a firm favourite for a good while now. I don’t make many designs in the orange spectrum, as I’m not really a hot person, but Marrakech was born when I speculatively ordered some crackled orange agate beads one day and I do really like them.





Now, to update things a little, for this design which I am just not ready to retire, I have swapped the bead for a new dyed orange agate one that has large gorgeous facets and beautiful marbling. For those who like to know this kind of thing, I was particularly attracted to them because of the unusual facets. I must ask my son which polygon they are (10 sided – decohedron?).




I hope you like the new twist to this spicy hot design!
