About this design:

The focal is actually copper, but with the dark wire and chain I thought I'd use the Ranger Pitch Black ink on it. That's why the name.

Components:

Multi-"jade" nuggets, artistic wire, patina & ink

    Thanks for the nice comments! @Asia, that is one of the best compliments I’ve ever received! I love to color – I have a whole collection of ink & gel pens that I use at work, and when I sketch out my designs I always make them color sketches. My personality type (you know, those tests we used to do at the office) is considered “expressive-driver” – meaning I am going in a straight direction most of the time, but doing so in a very colorful car! :)

    Cindy..this is such a happy design. I challenged myself to name the beads,before I read your description,and I was right. (Pats self on back).
    Do they call it “Candy Jade?” It’s great,and I love the red center,and butterfly.
