    Thank you all so much! The earring drops were bought like that. I wish I was that talented. I did try doing something similar with a round shape. It worked out ok, but I think it would be better with a smaller gauge then what I have.

    Great colors, Wanda, and I like the contrast of rondelle and rounds in the Canadian jade. Those earrings are something else, and I, too, wondered how you managed to do that ! Thanks for confessing that you bought them – - -

    Fabulous! The color combination is striking. Having part strung and part linked really adds to the interest.
