Mardi Gras


About this design:

I loved the colors indicted in these beads and I really like the Impression Jasper! I wanted to make this just as fun as the beads are, so I combined it with square Swarovski crystals and gold plated bead caps!

Components:

Mardi Gras mixed Impression Jasper Ladder Pendant fro LB, 4mm square Swarovski crystals multi colors, gold-plated bead caps square, toho beads and gold plated chain with lobster claw clasp...length is 17-18" long!

    Karen,this is so much fun to look at. I love some vivid color. What a wonderful job you did in designing the cubes to go with the large stones. I also love the bead caps. It’s stunning!!!
