InspirationFX: Summer Stones


Get your creative juices flowing

Summer Stones
by: Pam Kearns
I'm really taken with how the Yellow Jade and New Burma Jade go so well together. I've added Cherry Quartz and Antique Copper for a punch of colour to create this nice long necklace. The colours would take you through Summer and into Fall.

The necklace is done as simple stringing with the usual crimps/wire guardians and crimp covers.

The hex rondelles are added between the beads.

A feature is the use of the Double Nosy Posy and Mirror Nosy Posy components. They are just threaded onto the wire. One side the necklace mirrors the other, down to the centre of the necklace. The Nosy Posies do tend to flip back and forth; if this really bothers you, the necklace would look fine without them.
