Green Impression Jasper necklace

I have a thing for interesting stone patterns.  These bright green Impression Jasper tube beads were right up my alley, so I designed a necklace using them, antique copper metal seed beads, fern green and peridot green Swarovski bicones, a copper Swarovski square pendant, and copper findings.  The copper draws out the brown in the Jasper quite nicely.  This is also one of the longest necklaces I've made.  I wanted to keep it simple to display the different patterns in the stone.  The pendant can be adjusted to sit like a square, or diamond; the copper jump ring is loose enough.

Name:  Jade Jasper

Price:  $30 (reason: amount of stone and Swarovskis used)

Length:  24"

Graduation Bracelet #2

Here's the second project I did for the girl graduating this weekend.  She told me one time she loves the Swarovski color Crystal AB, so I incorporated it into this "extreme bling" bracelet.  I used silver spacers, Swarovski pearls in two sizes, and Swarovski crystal bicones.  I like how it turned out.

Name:  Amethyst Glow

Price:  $20 (reason: Swarovski crystals; original given to Mahlie)

Length:  approximately 8.5"

Graduation bracelet #1

A girl I work with is celebrating her graduation this coming weekend, and loves "bling."  I asked her if she'd like me to make her anything, and she said she really likes bracelets, so I made two for her.  The first is a mix of Swarovski crystals: teal, burgundy, and the new teal/burgundy blend released earlier this year.

Name:  Twilight Sparkle
