About this design:

I loved the ruby zoisite when I first saw it. Then had it, the dyed jade (hot pink) beads for months before I could figure out what to do with them. I had the crystal for years.


Ruby Zoisite, dyed jade beeads, gold chain,crystal beads and toggle clasp.

    Oh Judy..this is nice nice nice! I LOVE me some Ruby Zoisite! It’s a fascinating stone. I love knowing that Ruby is running though those rocks. Very nice combination,with the oval pink jade. The cystals give it a little zing,and just the right amount of separation. It’s lovely that you’ve used 3 different shapes that play together so nicely. This is primo stuff!! :)

    Wow – great necklace. I love ruby zoisite as well. I love how you used jade with it along with some crystals. Fantastic piece. Are you going to be able to make some earrings to match?

    What a happy, festive piece! I’m a fan of ruby zoisite also and I absolutely love it with the jade. The crystals in between let the gemstones take center stage. Great job!

    The colors go together so well! They work with the design nicely, too. Isn’t it great finally finding a use for things from your bead box after what seems like forever? Party, indeed!

    Intriguing! The ruby zoisite could overpower more cluttered designs, but you kept it simple and focused.
