for Jana

About this design:

Probably I should have added these photos to the last design I posted. After finishing “Be Square”, there were some Amazonite squares left and I was inspired to create a Birthday Present for my dear friend Jana. The original Be Square wasn’t quite right for her - - this is a little more delicate and has the small lever-back earrings whe prefers. Finished length 18 inches.


From Lima Beads: Amazonite Puff Square 8mm Other components: Gold-finish squares 7 mm, freshwater pearls, freshwater pearl squares 8 mm, round glass pearls 3mm, gold-finish 3mm rounds, teal round size 11 seed beads, gold-finish lobster clasp.
