Jade, not the Emperor

Standard

Jade, the gemstone, is elegant, cute, cool but not icy like agate.While writing this, this stone has already turned into a pendant for a statement piece. Another piece of jewellery made to relieve stress. Agates stones were used for stringing this necklace and the Jade was used for the pendant. The Saree is a pure silk saree from Kumaran Silks,Chennai,India.

The highlights of this piece is nothing but the Jade itself because while making the necklace myself, I noticed that it was still missing a component to reach that so called level, ‘statement piece’ so I reached my bead stash again and found that this Jade would fit into it and if not, since it was connected separately, it is easy to remove it and change to another pendant.

Just like the greatest of the three pure divine gods, the Jade Emperor, this Jade gemstone pendant makes this a unique piece.

Work place

Standard

Just digging through my stash of beads today and found these bean shaped beads which I found online some time back. This one was a quickly made earring for another sweater to be worn tomorrow for work.

And since many have already asked me where I work (with the beads), I decided to post my work table at home for jewellery making, sewing and crafts.

Orange marmalade earring

Standard

I made these last night for the bright orange turtle-neck sweater that I have. The hoops were very thin that I couldn’t fit it into the lock after filling with the beads and I even bent the hoop a bit (see the left one on the image). It was so bad that I used a trick to keep it intact.

I just glued the tips of the open end and inserted into the hoop lock and it was finished 👏 sometimes my brain thinks way beyond what I think, I am capable of. Guess what, the jump ring that I used to hang my orange glass pearl was stuck to the hoop in this process and now it is not moving too 😳
