Warm Soocho

About this design:

I love the combination of browns and blues. I didn't have much of the Soocho Jade or Brown Lace Agate so I put both into this design and brought them together with the blue swarovski crystals. So here is my final version which I'm happy to say sold on Sunday at my very first jewelry party!


Antique Soocho Jade, Brown Lace Agate, Swarovski crystals, metallich bronze beads, sterling silver beads...

    Beautiful! I never heard of Brown Lace Agate, so I don’t know which of the two browns is which, but the combination is spectacular, and the blue crystals do make it all come together, as do the periodic bead caps and the half spirals. This one really spoke to my earthy side. A fave
