Choker: Jade

This started of with a mishap, as the choker began life as a bracelet, however, I got carried away with the beads and the bracelet ended up far too big. However, I loved the sequence of beads and didn't want to take it apart and remove beads so, in a stroke of genius, I turned it into a choker. The nice thing about it is that the design is very clever as it allows you to wear it as tightly or as loosely as you like. The choker is fully adjustable and the lovely pale green organza ribbon is soft against your skin.

I used gorgeous pale green vintage beads, real jade beads, beautiful Swarovski beads in two colours (Peridot and Erinite), Czech emerald faceted beads, silver bicones, some lovely lustred green seedbeads, and diamonte spacers.

The earrings are kept simple, although quite long, with a Fleur-de-Lis connector and the same beads that I used in the choker. They look stunning worn together with the necklace.

I haven't decided yet if I am going to make a bracelet to go with this set. We'll see. Watch this space.

The item is for sale. Contact me by e-mail if you are interested.


  1. hi sybille,
    I like the diamonte spacers, i found some similar ones on an old pearl necklace but i haven't decided where i should use them yet.

  2. Mistakes are often really good arent they! I seem to get stuck with my work sometimes, do somthing wrong, and a whole new idea comes out of it, which would never have developed had i done what i had intended in the first place.
    The grrens here are beautiful, as I have said before, I think you have a really good eye for colour.
    Looking forward to seeing more.
    All the best,
