One of the items listed in my to buy list in China is a jade bracelet. But because I've seen a lot of them in Nanjing and Shanghai, and can't identify which one is real or not, I ended up with none.
I can't get over yet the fact the I wasn't able to buy anything made of jade in China, where it is abundant, instead I made one for myself using jade stones of different shapes that I ordered from my supplier in Divisoria. She is a Chinese business woman and according to her that these green jades are authentic and came from China. It's up for me to believe her or not, but as far as I know the Swarovski crystals and gold-filled components that I got from her are authentic.
It's been months since I held pliers, I thought I already forgot how to twist wires using them. Anyway, with the jade stones I got from Karen, here's what I came up with. A very easy to do and simple jade bracelet selecting only the flat square and flat hearts shapes.
While I made the first one for myself, the one below was made for my best friend Lorellie. I chose small piece of different shapes for her, I believe she prefers smaller stones.
Since Lorellie is now residing with her family in Calamba, Laguna, I'll be shipping this item for her if I can find time to drop by JRS if not, who knows I might visit the Metro and ask her to meet me there.
So what do you think about my latest creation?
