I made this necklace for my mom for Christmas in 2012. But in all reality I started this necklace about 5 years ago or well even more! I had beaded the Jade Donut in the middle and left it for all that time! I think she thought she was never going to see it completed! So I thought this was the year to finally finish it an surprised her with it for Christmas!

Here are some more detailed pictures of the beaded bezel:



Here is a sample of the Jade bead that is on both sides of the chain:


I hope you enjoyed it! Any feedback is welcome!

Thanks everyone! After putting in 5+ years of works with like 4.9 off in between ( Wink) I think my mom was just shocked to see it actually finished! She had bought all the materials, but I just wasn't ever "feeling" the project... to finish it felt soo good! And she loves wearing it!
