Beach Chic


About this design:

I received the Antique Soocho Jade from LB and loved the pattern of the strand. I decided I wanted to add very little to it. The blue and brown gave the stones a beachy quality to me, the sea urchin pendent immediately came to mind.

Components:

Antique Soocho Jade, Picture Jasper, Vintaj brass

    An example of ‘less is more’. I agree, this stands with little else needed. Knowing when to stop is a talent. Of course, the sand dollar pendant is a favorite of mine. Thank you for sharing.

    What a great way to use the Antique Soocho Jade.
    I’ve had mine for awhile and am uncertain what to do with it. I agree with Seashellsally, “less IS more” in this design. Thanks for sharing it!
