ABC Wednesday - J is for Jewelry



J is for Jewelry............



a jade and pearl necklace entwined



These are two of my favorite necklaces - both of them in the beaded style.

I entwined them to create this image as I have always liked the colors of them together.

My husband gave me both of them - the pearls were a gift a couple of years after we were married.

The gorgeous jade was given to me as a gift about 10 years ago. He had picked them up at an estate sale and was very happy to surprise me with them.

I love the old things the best - the care and obvious love that the former owner had for the jade is quite visible from the excellent condition it is in.

The history and stories they have is something I wonder about, but will not know.

Hopefully my daughter will cherish them someday as I have also.



This is the fourth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  8. What a beautiful necklace that jade string is! And it goes so nicely with the other - do you wear them together? If not, you should!

  12. Great Jewelry. Great picture! Did you use a lightbox? Ive found that using a lightbox and clear white led lights makes jewelry look amazing. Love the necklaces!
