|Jade with Ribbons Necklace and Bracelet set||
This set is a variation on a commission set produced for a customer.
In contrast with the buttery jade colour I chose to thread the necklace with delphinium purple, organza ribbon. I used lots of ribbon in this necklace. Not only to thread onto, but also as decoration throughout. I have tied small bows of ribbon onto the main necklace strand. I used not only the delphinium coloured ribbon but some jade coloured organza too.
Sprinkled randomly throughout the necklace are pretty, rose quartz butterflies and sparkly, berry coloured, faceted swarovski crystals.
The length of the necklace is a bohemian 32 inches. With a necklace of this length, you can of course double it to get 2 strands. Two looks for the price of one! The necklace ties to close.
This necklace took me just a little over 2 hours to complete.
I have used four, flat, oval shaped jade beads for the main beads in this bracelet. In between each jade bead are berry coloured, faceted swarovski crystals and organza ribbon bows. The bracelet has been finished at either end with a delicate, rose quartz butterfly bead.
The bracelet has been threaded together using purple coloured hemp twine. I have used a pearl knotting technique here, knotting in between each bead.
I've used a ribbon tie to close the bracelet. A distinct advantage to this is that this bracelet will fit a wide range of wrist sizes. Smallest size wrist this will fit is 6.5 inches. The largest size it will fit is about 12 inches.
This bracelet took me about 1 hour to complete.
