Chinese inspired jewelry

The two necklaces and matching pairs of earrings to the left have a Chinese look. The butterly with the look of carved ivory was a pendant from a stash of broken jewelry I've had around for a long time. The larger round beads used in the necklace are from a broken bracelet I purchased at a discount store. The smaller round beads are amber and have a crackled appearance.

The longer necklace was made using new beads, some with an irregular shape, and a lacy looking 'Chinese' pendant with dragons on either side. I purchased the pendant from a nearby jewelry store. I incorporated eggplant colored beads with the more neutral beads to add interest.
