Watermelon Jade Multi-strand Necklace

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I like the flow of colors and the soft drape created by attaching each strand to wire circles. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Avoid tiny stone chips. Finding the holes was a bear!

What you will need

  • Jade Stones mixed with crystals
  • delicas
  • and stone chips strung on softflex beading wire. 26 gauge wire was used to create the circles from which the strands were attached using crimps and wire guardians.
