“Look What I got !!!”


Description from Mary - Sweet Chick: Here's a few of the beads I just got (plus a few I'd like to have).
The Silver Creek jasper pendant I recieved has a greenish/pink tone to it and was thinking of mixing in the pistachio and angel skin pearls to accent it. The antique soocho jade looks good next to it too. Now I need a design. Any suggestions Chickies? What else could I add?

    sweet chick,

    what a fun question, glad to hear you got some silver creek jasper, that’s one I’ve had my eyes on, havent seen this stone at other companies’ sites. very fascinating to hear it has greenish and pinkish overtones… the silver moonstone looks like it would go well, plus the antique soochow jade and the pearls you have, will be fun to hear what everyone else suggests!

    Just so you know Joyce, they don’t all have that green/pink color to them. I have some of the other size beads and the colors vary from shades of grey with a bit of burgandy and some have more of a neutral soft brownish tone to them.
    Thanks for the comments!

    wow, fascinating to hear about the variances in this stone, gray with a bit of burgundy, or soft browns w/ the greens eh? the golden wooden jasper, copper and silver green pearls, plus vintaj brass look like they also combine well with the silver creek jasper!!! hope you’ll make something with that new pendant and post some pics okay???

    I’m thinking the silver green pearls, soocho jade and the jasper pendant with brass or copper.

    Beautiful pick! don’t you just love it when that box comes in the mail! :)

    I agree with Gem, you have to use a different metal, like brass- to tone the colors down, or, copper to blend the colors!!! love these colors!!!

    Thanks Chickies! Keep the comments coming.
    I love it when someone else can make some decisions for me. I am such a procrastinator when it comes to making decisions.
    It helps to have creative input from others who share your passion for beading. This is the only place I can get that input. No one else in this small town beads(that I know of).

    Hi Sweet Chick! I know what you mean, I tend to procrastinate a lot too, especially when it comes to making creative decisions. But when you step away from your design for a while and then come back to it later, sometimes the perfect design just pops out at you. Of the stones you have in this pick I actually like the copper pearls with the jasper pendant. And I would use brass spacers/beads to keep some of that brown from the pendant. Good luck designing and I hope you’ll post a pic of what you came up with! :)

    If I ever learn how to post pics I certainly will. (Part of my procrastination AND lack of Techno geek genes).
