Jade

True jade is either jadeite or nephrite. You can find the gemstone jade in many colors, white, cream, black, and pink. But the most common color, and the color that you are most familiar is green.

Jade is still the most popular stone in China. Chinese associate green with wisdom. Since the ancient times jade is believed to assure a long life, and peaceful death.

Design Possibilities

Cool warmer colored beads by mixing in some lighter colored jade beads. Or mix with white beads for a cool wintery look.

Combine medium to dark green jade beads with purple amethyst beads for a surprisingly beautiful look, For a exquisitely exotic look wear a dark green jade pendant with a deep purple dress.

Metaphysical Properties

Jade is believed to help inspire the mind, and to help make quick and precise decisions. Symbolically jade represents a long and prosperous life, a life full of luck and love.

It offers physical and emotional well-being during unpleasant or difficult situations, by helping you feel more grounded. Jade can help you accept and deal with the situations in a sanely manner.

The gemstone Jade can be found is Burma, China, Canada, New Zealand. Small quantities of the gemstone can also be found in Mexico, Egypt, and Silesia.

Here's a wonderful tutorial that I ran across at the "Clever Chicks Blog Hop #99", it is for making hardware jewelry. "Nail Polish Washer Necklaces", I love getting new ideas, and learning new technique's.

This would be a great project to do with the kids. All you need is flat washers, nail polish, and cord. Adding a charm is optional. I think they are really pretty either way.

I love all the bright pretty colors Mona from "Craft Klatch" chose when making these nail polish washer pendants. They all turned out really pretty.

For step by step instructions, or to watch the video hop on over to Craft Klatch.

My favorite is the purple washer with the sand dollar. Which is your's?

Time To Organize Craft Room

WooHoo! I am soooo excited, we got our new carpet in, now I can start getting my craft room set up and organized, along with the guest room.

I am so tired of having boxes everywhere, and furniture in the formal dinning, breakfast nook, and garage. The house has just been a big under construction mess since we moved in. I'm ready to get organized.

We still have painting to do in the kitchen, breakfast nook, master bath, and all cabinets. But we are getting to a place where we can at least get most of the house in order (-;

Here are before pictures of my craft room.

Fancy Jasper Gemstones

Today's gemstone is another favorite of mine. Fancy jasper is a mixture of attractive colors: browns, creams, mauves, lilacs, reds and greens all mixed together in one stone.

Design Possibilities

Accent solid colored beads by combining with fancy jasper. Create a stunning design by combining with Green aventurine, or other dark green beads. Highlight the mauve and lilac shades by combining with lavender or deep purple amethyst. Add sterling silver beads to accent or complement your favorite colors.

Metaphysical Properties

Fancy Jasper is regarded as a stone of gentleness and relaxation. It is believed to enhance one's ability to relax and bring tranquility, and comfort.

Like all jaspers, fancy jasper is also known as a good protection stone. It can relieve fear, frustration and guilt, building inner strength and confidence.

Fancy jasper can be found all around the world, including the United States, Africa & Brazil
