Jaded/ Adventurine Necklace &Earrings


About this design:

I will most likely wear this? Ted wants me to take it to the little man at Waldo Flea market. He said he will display one of my pieces. When it sells bring him another and so on. Well it is a start. It is getting warmer out too there is always a lot of people out there on the week ends though. He wants 20% of what I sell it for sounds like maybe an alright deal.

Components:

New Jade faceted green nuggets, 10x6 adventurine rondells, with silver bead caps, and large clear seed beads tucked under (so the hopefully don't scratch the jade) silver wire, fancy crimps, and silver appearing toggle clasp antiqued finish.

    I love that necklace. The square makes it soooo different. Maybe, when you price it, keep that 20% commission for him in mind. I would buy this – good luck.

    Thank you Alice, D. Snyder, Valley Girl, and Kitty Mom Linda for the nice compliments and thank you for the thought that you would buy this one Linda. This is not one of my tiny creations the new jade is very big chunky about maybe 3-4 times bigger than the adventurine. I couldn’t put the jade in the earrings I was afraid I would get sued for breaking someone’s neck. LOL

    Violet says:

    This is beautiful, Faith… love the colors and the combo of stones you used !!!
    If you like this one, I say keep it…..
    but I think you should definitely pick a piece to take to the man at the market… it sounds like a good chance for a sale…. as mom Linda said,
    think of what you want to price it at and then add his 20 percent on top….
    that way you won’t loose …..
    Go for it girl !!!!! And good luck !!!!!!

    Faithful Chick aka Faith says:

    Thank you Violet! This one will probably go. Just because I like it doesn’t mean I should keep it right.

    I love the chunky nuggets! The rondelles balance them well. Beautiful colors!
    You really should bring this to the “little man” and include his mark up in you price.
    Hey – you can always make another one…
