Copper and jade necklace

About this design:

I bought these huge jade fat rondelle beads and was at a loss as to what to do with them as they were so heavy. I decided to hand knot just a few of them on chocolate brown leather cord and attach them to some flame enhanced copper chain. I really loved how it turned out and ended up selling this piece. I think this design works really well with big heavy stones.


1 1/4" diameter by 5/8" thick multi color jade rondelles,chocolate brown leather cord, flame enhanced hammered copper chain amd a hammered copper toggle.

    Me and big stones can’t seem to get along. I love looking at them, holding them…..but find them difficult to design with.
    Well done!

    Me, three :) re: big stones. But like Asia and Mary S have said, this design is fantastic. I love seeing bold necklaces like this on other people. It’s superb.
