Xmas Green Imp

About this design:

I was lurking in the BGBM when some Green Impression Jasper Rice appeared. Hey! Those would look perfect with my bright green fleecy jacket I'm giving myself for Xmas... and, the package got here in time for me to make the necklace (and earrings) in time to wear them for Xmas! Thank you Lima Beads!


Green Impression Jasper, River Stone, Peridot-green xtals, dark bronze fire-polished beads, copper.

    This is beautiful–love the light and dark; the riverstone really makes the green impression jasper pop to the eye. What’s the pendant? Did you weave Cu wire?

    Great job…you’ll look stunning in this with your green fleece jacket.

    Glad you like it! No, I didn’t make the wire snarl – I bought it from LB earlier this year. But now, thanks to KH, I can make more!
    Also, I have to put some padding under the scanner – it’s shaking more and more, making things look out of focus.

    I adore these colors together. The copper is a wonderful element that brings out the patterns in the green stone and warms the piece.
    You have either green or brown eyes, and this looks divine on you. Right?

    It’s too funny, the snarly wire pendant was the last thing to be added to the design (which went through at least 5 iterations before I settled on this one… once I’d decided to add more copper, I’d originally planned on incorporating 3 of the flat copper ‘canteen’ beads, but the my eye fell on the wire triangle…
    Claire: Why yes, I have green-brown hazel eyes (actually more in tune with the color of rhyolite, but any green is great).
