Hammered sterling silver hoop earrings with blue apatite

sterling silver hoop earrings with blue apatite

I would rather have made these with lapis stones, but recall I'm still on my "bead cold turkey," so I used some blue apatite stones instead. Pretty pleased how they came out, would like to try making more hoop earrings.

Jade bracelet with Bali vermeil beads and green apatite clasp

Ta da! Finally done with this piece. The key are the Bali vermeil beads, perhaps because they have so many kinds.

Jade and pearl necklace and bracelet pics
posted by Colleen Shirazi, February 8, 2007 at 7:45 PM (Pacific)







Not the best quality pics, I took them just now. In the first pic if you look closely, the pearls have this eerie halo of light (at first I thought it was lint!). And the bracelet clasp is much prettier in real life. Oh well, just to give you an idea of the finished pieces.

Jade and pearl bracelet
posted by Colleen Shirazi, January 30, 2007 at 10:26 AM (Pacific)









As you can see, I didn't bother stringing the third strand. I did the first strand to check the length...the second strand to see if the bead size would work with the spacer bars. When it's finished, it will have the infamous "wire guardians," plus of course some goldfilled crimp covers. I'll also likely migrate the deepest-colored jade beads to the ends of the bracelet, since the stone in the clasp is a deep green color.
