Jade and Ivory set

I finally used the faux jade and ivory beads I created. You can see the different colors used in each bead. I love the jade but my next batch will have a more "creamy jade" look I hope as this batch seen was colored with pearl ex powders. Great shades but too much sparkle for jade.

You can see the veins in the ivory beads in the photo above. So detailed. I'm glad I made a nice sized cane of that mix to use later.

Here is the necklace, bracelet and earrings I made with a few beads left over. The only beads I did not make in this set were the tiny wooden beads I used for spacers. They compliment the jade and ivory so well.

My new batch of jade uses tinted translucent clay and embossing power for the depth.


  1. Your jewelry is just gorgeous! I need to play around with some faux techniues too. I love the sheen that your jade with Pearlex has! =D

  2. I love the sheen the PEX gave your jade. I love the use of colors together also. Love it!
