Jenny's Java


About this design:

Jenny, the woman who runs the coffee kiosk at work, asked for coffee related jewelry. The GG Java pendant was the obvious choice. And brioche agate, with its range of colors from milky white to dark mocha, the obvious choice for beads.

Components:

Green Girl Java pendant, Brioche Agate rondelles from LBS, TierraCast Antique Silver (plated) Faceted Heishi 3mm, coffee bead czech glass beads, silver plated clasp

    Oh, this is just too cute. I love it. I saw some coffee themed charms on a site somewhere recently. Hmmm, too bad I don’t remember where – it was one of those surfing days. Those coffee bean beads are so clever – where did you get them?

    This is really cute. I like the coffee bean beads also. I’ve had far too much coffee today. We made a trip to the Bass Pro Shop in Orlando FL
    today. It was over 3 hours to get there about 140 miles oneway. Then on the way home Ted decided to come back Rt. 4 and I-95 well of course there was an accident and we got re-routed
    which was probably best. I think it took us 5 hours to get home. I know I am worn out. Had so much fun though.

    Wow! I love this necklace. The Green Girl pendant is perfect, and the Brioche Agate rondelles and other beads you chose really set it off to a tea (or in this case, a coffee). I bet the woman loves it. I know I do. Into my faves!
