Peaceful Heart


About this design:

Peace jade is the perfect name for these ivory and seafoam stones. Never thought it would complement topaz until I found the Grace beads with the same colors, as well as gold and touches of turquoise.

Components:

Peace Jade, lampwork beads, silver beads, specially coated Swarovski crystal, Czech rondelles, freshwater pearls, silver plated spacers and clasp

    Thanks! LB has offered peace jade. Can’t find any at the moment, but Burma jade has a lot of possibilities. The Grace beads are among my favorites because they have a lot going on–depth, color variation, intriguing patterns. I’m a sucker for anything that feels Victorian-ish.
