Even More Soochow

About this design:

A few nights ago I couldn't sleep so I started thinking about designs I'd like to try. This is what I envisioned. Luckily I remembered it the next morning.

Components:

Weave Got Maille jump rings for the Roundmaille chainmaille weave, 20 gauge Artistic Wire, 4mm Antique Soochow Jade (LB), and 13×4mm Antique Soochow Jade tubes (LB).

    Kye, are you night-time creating too? Sometimes I think I’m going to remember in the morning, but to no avail–I’m glad to did. This is stunning! I love the multicolored rings you used in the weave–and what better to match with them than Antique Soochow Jade? The way you finish off the ends of the weave with the three sets of beads has always been a favorite technique of mine. I really, really, really like this! :)

    Kye, you are so creative! The multicolor jumps compliment the soochow beautifully. And incorporating a triple strand in the middle is a great idea. I wish I could remember all these neat ideas. I’ll fav this to help me remember!
