Crystal Shadow Earrings

I made these earrings to go with my Jean Power pendant.

Jade earrings

I made a simple pair of earrings to go with my jade pendant.

New Zealand flower jade

Last year My husband and I spent 3 weeks in New Zealand. I found this lovely New Zealand flower jade cabochon and a string of round jade beads.
I have encased the cabochon with size15/0 miyukis ans a gold delica. I put 4mm gold filled beads between each jade bead.
This is one of Jean Power geometric patterns.The pendant is double sided. This side shows the swarovski golden shadow crytal cabochon. The other side would show the eldorado crystal. I have varied mine from the original pattern. Jean had a round encasement on the back side. I have made mine a star shape on both sides.


I found this pattern in an old stichery book I bought at a market. It is typically victorian with the insects and flora


I made this necklace while on holiday in Jindabyne. I have used czech crystal and miyuki delicas.

Thanks to Marie Geraud again!
The centrepiece is a square swarovski stone. I have used myuki seed beads in the surround.
This didn't quite work out the same as Marie's example. The ruffled look is my own accidental invention!

Another pendant from a Marie Geraud pattern. (see links section)
I have used swarivski crystal stones surrounded by myuki seed beads.


This lovely necklace was made using a motif by Angeles.

Here is a close up to show the detail.
I have used swarovski pearls and bicones. The seed beads are myuki.
