Shades of Copper and Jade

About this design:

I just finished the copper/brass pendant. Then I went to my stash for some gems and Czech beads....I think it came together nicely!


Antique soochow jade, amazonite, and Czech beads from LB and etsy. Ceramic bead from LB. Embossed copper sheet, plain copper and brass sheets from etsy...I hammered and shaped them, dipped the large one in liver of sulphur. Chain from local shop.

    Very nice the way you layered the hammered metal pieces atop the larger embossed one. I like the short lengths of chain spaced out with the wrapped beads. The teardrop section adds extra interest too. Isn’t it great when things come together?! :)
