Leopardskin Jasper Necklace and Earrings

About this design:

Checking out my beads and came across these Leopardskin Jasper beads and the faded coral porcelain beads - then I saw the agate ammonite. I felt like doing something other than woven seed beads. Seems like I'm beading a lot lately.

    I noticed that you are getting a lot of pieces done lately. And you’ve been doing very time consuming projects as well. It’s nice to go through your stuff and find things you have forgotten. Very pretty design.

    It IS fun to go through your stash KR. This one wasn’t very time consuming though. Thank you.

    Thank goodness it doesn’t have to be time consuming to be beautiful! I’ve been trying to sort my stash and realized the date. My Christmas decorations aren’t even up yet. I made a bunch of decorations for my 4 foot tree last year and have materials to make beaded snowflakes. I’ve made about a dozen in the last 2 evenings. I love your necklace and beads. I saw it this morning but didn’t get to comment until this evening.

    Thanks Pam. It’s so different using beading wire and crimps and wire holders – but it was fun putting it all together.

    Yet another beautiful set. The addition of coral to the jasper is so refreshing. I’m so impressed with the beauty and skill of your work plus the volume! I wish I got as much done. So inspiring!

    BLE, going through the stash is like taking a shopping expedition in a jam packed bead store. All kinds of new re-discoveries (is that even a word?). Great combination of colors and the faded coral porcelain piece is a perfect highlight.

    Thank you all ladies – you’re so nice. LRC – I love re-discoveries. (Maybe I rediscover more things as I get older – Ha. – better than forgetting)
    Fresh Baked – I really like the little ammonite charm also. Very pretty.
