When I was younger (not that I'm OLD!), I used to think that Jade is for senior person (I better avoid the 'O' word). Wait a minute! I re-phrase: Jade tends to give the impression that the wearer belongs to an older age group. (Oops, can't avoid using the word.)
Anyway, I have changed this perspective ever since I saw these square Jade donuts:
Immediately I took out my purse and bought them.
I have cracked my head for months thinking of ways to use them. This was done in a rush because I needed a matching necklace for a wedding reception. Sometimes stress will bring best results! LOL. So far, this is the most satisfactory piece of work that I have done.
These are not of A grade quality which I cannot possibly afford. However, they are good enough for beading hobbyists. This pair of earrings below is another example of the non-A grade Jade:
These round Jade donuts are very traditional. I teamed them with these interesting metal ball beads to give a contemporary look. Even my thirty year old daughter wears it!
Conclusion: Jade is not for seniors only.
