These jade balls were a present from a Chinese friend. I had tried various threading materials but they did not look right. After watching this tutorial I bought some antique gold plated craft wire and paired them with 4mm orange agate and 4mm faceted moss agate beads to tone with the main colours in the jade. Add a gold plated clasp and I'm really pleased with the result.
I thought this was great class teaching a very inexpensive and useful alternative to stringing beads.
