Hello, friends!

This is my first real foray into jewelry making... I've been dabbling in it a bit for the past month or so, but this was the first "real" set I've finished.  I'm not sure how I feel about the earrings... I think I'm going to remove the Asian charms from them, and just have the jasper.

Made of chips of jasper, small white-silver seed beads, and Asian charms.







What do you think?  Please, please give me criticism!  I'm still learning.  Should I take off the charms on the earrings?

Your set is very pretty, I love the color of the Jasper and how you made a space for the charm on the necklace with seed beads. I like the charms on the earrings, but I might take them off of there, I think they'd be cute near the clasp of a bracelet (if you have more jasper).

Actually... you know, you just gave me a fabulous idea.  This necklace has one of those adjustable chains on the back, you know, so you can clip the lobster claw clip anywhere along it, but I always have it on the smallest setting.  I think I'm gonna put one of those charms on the end of the chain.  Thanks for the inspiration!  Cheesy
