Jade and Sunstone
“You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”
~ Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
A while back, I was the lucky recipient of beautiful Nephrite Jade and Sunstone beads from Magpie Gemstones for being one of their blog buddies! The premise of this is that one is given a set of gorgeous beads … either to review the stones, or create & share something you’ve made. I have opted to create & show off these pretties to the world!
Aren’t the gems just gorgeous!?
It has taken me a LONG time to figure out just the perfect design to showcase these lovelies … and one piece just didn’t seem to do them justice, so instead, may I present to you … 3!
the first piece … the boho chic multi strand leather bracelet
the second piece … sunflower & gem drop earrings
and the third (final) piece is something very different from anything else I have ever created … I needed something to showcase the larger sunstone teardrop shape … and I think this necklace did it quite nicely 🙂
May I present – the wire wrapped butterfly necklace …
Thank you so much Szarka (both for the beautiful beads and for your patience!)
