Jazzed in Jade

About this design:

I have had the focal bead for awhile-It took me a long time to add the jade and fwp. I am happy with the piece but feel it is way to much green. Any thoughts?


lampworked focal bead, green freshwater pearls and jade along with sterling silver.

    I think this is really pretty..I’m with you sometimes green just seems too green:if you wanted to you could add more silver through your strand to break it up some but It’s a matter of personal taste..your pendant bead is awesome…oh you could pic up some of those lighter shades in your pendant also if you didn’t like the bold green look..just a couple ideas good luck…YFIB Stromy chic

    I love it the way it is. I think it’s very calming. You could, Stormy Chic said, add more silver, or a few white beads, not too big, that pull the white from the pendant. I, however, LOVE it the way it is.

    Changed my mind, scratch the white – would be too stark, unless you want more summery look.

    Or, maybe two white very large beads somewhere on it. I’ll stop now.

    You can never have TOO MUCH green!
    I like it as it is. However, bits of silver could “lighten” it somewhat and give it a little bling, but that’s up to you. Good job!

    I like this, and the green colors are wonderful! I think I would love even more, if it was a double bracelet! I’m in a bracelet mood nowadays, you know!! ;-)

    There is no such thing as too much green (she types from her green-walled bedroom, wearing a green shirt…)

    It’s gorgeous … not to much green at all. The lighter green in the Jade chips adds interest as does the slightly darker green and sheen of the pearls. The focal bead is incredible. I think this is a keeper. Into my faves!
