Dancing on a Rainbow


About this design:

These Rainbow Soocho Jade beads are so "juicy" looking. I discovered these beads in a beading magazine a few years ago, and found that Lima carried them. I enjoy working with natural brass, so couldn't help matching them up together. I added a few fuchsia Swarovski crystal bicones to highlight the great rainbow colors.
This piece is one of my many made this year for sale at our Christmas bazaar.

Components:

Rainbow Soocho Jade, Fuchsia Swarovski crystals, Natural Brass

    Thank you! Brass is so great to work with; it can be shaped and is quite “giving”.
