Several days ago I read an article about celebrities with ombre hair. I looked at myself in the mirror and realized I haven't dyed my hair in several weeks. I guess now I have the hottest hair color due to laziness...
The cheapest semi-precious stone comes in chips in assorted colors and sizes and are often used in "boho" jewelry instead of more refined jewelry.  I think an ombre pattern is one way to make these agate chips into something more polished looking.

First sort the stones into several different piles according to color.

Take a head pin, string the darkest stones first, then gradually string the lighter ones (use 5-10 stones per pin). Make a loop with the last 1/4 inch of wire.

Finally take a length of chain with large links, attach stone pins onto every other link.
