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.

Components:

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!
