This is my first attempted to make the fancy wire wrapped ring. I do not know the name of the technique ,so I thought I might call it the Egyptian Ring because it reminds me of the beatle bug in a way. I used 21 gauge half round half hard Copper wire and a handcrafted Faux Jade cabochon. this ring is a size 7 1/2

I love the color of Green Jade. After making this little faux jade bead I knew exactly what I was going to make with him" A Brooch'
This piece is a little over 2's in length x 1' wide I love how it turned out.
Jade is the stone of "Wisdom and Prosperity" There are many colors of Jade, but green and white is by far the most popular color. It is thought to be calming of the nervous system. Green jade is thought to bring life and growth, and to assist in one infinding their hearts one true desire. I am sure that it has a lot of mean to a lot of people, but I won't go into all of them.

I raided my husband closet, and took his old leather belts. As you can see above the outcome turned out fantastic! When I told him that I cut his belts up, He totally freaked *LOL*. After he seen his present, he wasn't so mad anymore. He said that it was *Way Cool* He named this his lucky fishing cuff. The beads are made out of PC Faux Bone and they are hand carved with Tribal markings. The one that looks like a wagon wheel means "permanant Home" and the one that has the medican mans eye means "Wise and Watchful". I have more of these coming up soon. This is the second one that I made.
I have been brushing up on some old School leather classes from when I was a child. It is funny how things come back to you like that.
