Exquisite Chinese Jade

I've been busy carving waxes in my studio and should be back to journaling regularly from now on.

The series of photos below are a necklace that I made for Brenda Clough from exquisite jade that her grandparents brought here when they came from China. Working with jade of this quality is always a joy.


Photo of the necklace  - pearls in butterflies are natural pearls.



Close up - carving on the wings are lovely.

I'm currently working on several new designs including a necklace of asymmetrical textured silver pieces set with diamonds.  i just finished a pair of garnet and peridot earrings in wax. I'm feeling very energized around my work.
