About this design:

A lady I know saw,me wearing one of my tree of life necklaces. She asked if I would make her one using jade. I was able to find a jade "druzy" and jade beads on etsy. I inverted the cab for a different look, and then departed from my usual beaded chain by wrapping around the outside of the bead, then I finished it with a simple clasp. Once that was done I dipped it in liver of sulfur and hand polished it.


18 gauge sterling silver wire (frame and clasp) 26 gauge sterling silver (tree of life) 24 gauge sterling silver (chain) jade "druzy" cabochon jade beads

    Very pretty Khristin – Looked up liver of sulfur. Love the way the wire looks wrapped around the beads. The inverted cab reminds me of a heart.

    Awesome work! Love the larger beads in the chain work & how you inverted the cabochon. The wired tree looks wonderful against the richness of the Jade stone. Another great work of art!
