    Thanks Sonja! She LOVED the Octo, she decided she wanted it on a more elaborate beaded necklace as opposed to a chain once she saw it. We sat down and discussed what she wanted, the only thing she knew she wanted for sure was the faceted maroon jade, she told me to just be creative with the rest, this is the result!

    Ravin, this is beautiful!! I love that you combined your tiny twisted personality (this comment is not meant to be derogatory it is said with much love, and admiration. And with personal knowledge of a twisted personality) with the beautiful beads.

    Ravin, this turned out REALLY nicely. Great sense of design and balance with the beads. Your twisted little twisting fingers do you proud! Hugs

    Thank you so much everyone, as tough as this was, I had so much fun making it!! She lives pretty far from the jockey Lot so only gets into Anderson every now and again, she’ll be getting it on the weekend of the 18th. She LOVES any and all jade, and ANYTHING strange and unusual, so I need to be on the lookout when I do actually have the $$ to start re-investing, heh!
