A Slice of Ham

About this design:

The client who bought this did so because she said the slice reminded her of a slice of ham. She likes ham, LOL.

Another slice, more orange....Im not bored with them yet!

    Hilarious! First chocolate, now ham. I love your wild and bold designs Jazz. You are encouraging me to do some pendants, I haven’t gone that route yet.

    I’m ready for dinner and dessert! Love this! I use pendants on almost everything I make. Where did you find this slice? (of ham). Thought LB had offered some sliced gemstones but haven’t been able to find them here.

    I don’t work so much with these colors, but I do like the necklace you’ve made! The mix of beads with the “ham slice” is perfect! :-)

    Now who is “Hamming it up?” Sorry …had to get that one out of my system. ;)

    Love the pretty pendant, and you did a great job of presenting it in a really pretty setting. The beads you chose are just right!!! I use pendants a lot, and I really like this. The earrings are very nice too! :-)

    Thank all of ya’ll. :-)

    Carole: I order the agate slices by the dozen from a local who imports from Egypt. The company he gets his stuff from only has these red agate slices, which are wonderful, but I wish I could get them in some other colors. But since every single one is an individual (not uniform) shape, style and color/shade, you can make gorgeous and DIFFERENT pieces of jewelry out of each one.

    LMAO@ “hamming it up”. :-) ))
