What is Needlepoint?
There are two similar techniques of using very small pieces of stone to decorate a piece and they are often confused.
Petit Point is comprised of long , narrow teardrop-shaped stones that have one rounded end and one more pointed end.
Needle Point is comprised of straight, long, narrow stones that are pointed on both ends.
Coral (also called Red Branch Coral)
Coral jewelry has been found in ancient Egyptian and prehistoric European burials. The Romans believed coral could protect children from harm, as well as cure bites from snakes and scorpions and diagnose diseases by changing colour.
