Hand-cut Afghanistan Jade & Tinned Copper Earrings...

First use of the tinned copper paddle dangles and circle findings with 8mm Afghanistan jade beads:

Need to work on the dangleability of the beads: the way they got wrapped, the bead on the left is a little too tight to sway freely. As you can see, the beads are not precisely round, and they are a gorgeous pale milky, mottled green, slightly lighter than in this photo, which was taken at the market under fluorescent lighting.

I finished them off with Argentium sterling earwires with nuts.

Thanks for looking!
