Wild Jade Growth by ChaosFay Wild Jade Growth by ChaosFay
I made this piece specifically for the monochrome contest :icontwiggyteeluck: is holding. Info on the contest here: [link]

This decadent piece is made using real jade chips and a jade pendant, as well as glass pears, acrylic rose beads, and large glass stardust pearls. The cords used are not hemp, but are in fact made of cotton. This makes breaking in the necklace much easier, and without the odor hemp occassionally has.

Properties of jade:
-it is believed, in many cultures, to attract love
-strengthens your mental faculties and assists in clear reasoning
-bring money and wealth into your life
-a protective stone, guarding against accidents and misfortune
- helps the body in self-healing while working through underlying, non-physical reasons for a precipitation for disease
-used also for courage, wisdom, justice, mercy, emotional balance, stamina, love, fidelity, humility, generosity, peace, harmony

Length from end to end: 21.5 in/54 cm
Length from top to bottom: 10.5 in/26 cm

Because of the number of beads and stone in this, well as the intricate design, this piece does carry some weight with it. It is not nearly as heavy as it looks, but it is a little heavier due to the chunkiness in the design.

Devart Edit: The pendant is a very light green jade, and yes, the shirt is green. My camera picked up the perfect green-ness of the necklace, but not the pendant or sure. I assure you it is all green. I've replaced the original picture with the raw version of the picture. My apartment's lighting is horrific and the person holding the contest can't tell if this is monochromatic. O.o So here you go.

I probably couldn't afford this one anyway, though I've been gawking at it for a while. My finances are pretty fail too, for reasons you already know pertaining to Having To Move. stupid overdraft thing. There's no way the phone company will stop it? ridiculous. of course, phone companies -excel- at being ridiculous. did you ship out that choker btw?

no problems! I had an Idea just now, btw. I was thinking we could offer people discounts if they order from both of us? I.e. "You can get 15% off any pendant I make if you choose to commission chaosfay to make you a necklace or choker for it" and vice versa.

Hmmmm sounds good. A specific coupon to be used with each. You'll mail the pendant directly to me and I to them.

Exactly! :highfive: so hopefully it'd result in more money for both of us, and more chances to collaborate! it's going to sound sappy, but in some ways you complete me as a jeweler heheh.

She claimed it's not monochrome because the center bead looks white. Uhhhhh no, it's a very light jade. Besides, monochrome can include white or black into a piece so long as it's not the dominate color.

exactly. I got it in before the deadline and she and I have talked about my piece. I haven't seen her add it to the contest folder she has, which has me really upset. I spent HOURS on this piece!

Yet again, this looks like something a Nelf Drood would wear. LOL

I can picture this sitting on my Drood, Lucielora's neck.
