Penelopes Twisted Jade set by sweetdream20 Penelopes Twisted Jade set by sweetdream20
A rich and elegant twist.

Inspired by the sea. Reminds me of rolling green waves or something maybe a selkie would wear. Made with glass seed beads and 4mm Jade beads. The length is adjustable and you can twist the seed beads strands or let them hang loose, whatever your whim. The twisted peyote weave is designed to lay rounded and comfortably along the front of the neckline, the strands - along the sides and back.

Thank you for looking!

This makes me think of a snake, with the colours and patterns and shininess of the beads. beautiful work.

Thank you =) tubular peyote in general reminds me of a snake-like creature with seed beads as scales. My husband likened this one to a dragon.. like the rolling ridges along a dragon's back or something.

Beautiful color combo! And beautiful shape. For some reason, it makes me think of Egypt as well as the sea...

Thank you! At first I experimented with the jade, brown, and green only and it just looked really plain and borish. I was about 1/3rd of the way through the spiral when I scrapped it to add the gold. I'm glad I did! =D

The gold seems to give it a bit more 'pop', but still balanced-looking. It's usually not fun to scrap work, but this came out lovely!
