So, many many eons ago, faecat went through a stage of bringing home small shinies for me on a pretty regular basis, and the jade pig bead (for good luck, I was told) you see in the middle of this necklace was one of them. I've been carting him around with me since then, occasionally wearing him on a bit of black cord or chain or something, until it occurred to me that I could actually do something, you know, pretty and nice and permanent with him. so, here's the result. It's hard to see, but the smallest beads are both green and purple, and the whole thing is just really nice.
This whole bead thing? Could get addictive.
