Jade Green & Amethyst

A childhood friend brought this beautiful pale green stone donut to me and asked me to wire wrap it for her.  I tried three different wraps before deciding to do a free form wrap.  She chose the jeweler's bronze wire, and since her birth stone and favorite color is amethyst, I incorporated some beautiful genuine amethyst round beads and a light amethyst crystal accent.  She told me to "go crazy", so I did!  I would love to hear what you think of this piece!  Should I have left the donut with just the wire or are the additional beads a plus in the design?

Winter Storn - Dec. 14, 2010

Lots of snow last night!  Another 2-4 expected today - more if you're in the snow belt!  Last night's accumulation was at least 8 inches.

I have added a new category to my jewelry line - lanyards.  I made several pieces for a show I did recently at a local hospital.  Today I added them to my Artfire site.  I made them in several colors and all with magnetic closures for safety.  The metal components on most of them can be removed so the lanyard can be converted to a necklace!   They are dressy enough to be worn for work or out for the evening.  I think this is a big plus!  Hope you like them!   Happy Holidays!  Anita
