April is SO hard to find a good birthstone gemstone replacement for. I remembered there are Herkimer Diamonds, the “poor man’s diamonds”, so I made this as a sort of twist on a gemstone necklace for April. I thought there would be more inclusions to make the black “pop” with the 3mm black freshwater pearls, but go figure I ended up with a pretty clear strand of Herkimers!
