J is for.....

JADE!
And we all know that Jade is GREEN  BLUE  WHITE?
Jade has been around for a very long time.  Artifacts from prehistoric sites include beads and buttons and also axe heads and knives.  In fact, the colours range from blue, through pink and mauve to green, and beyond...
Here, EverSoDear combines Yellow Jade with teapots for a fun pair of earrings.

 
This feature donut combines so perfectly with the Swarovski crystals in this necklace.  Made by katzkreations.  

 
  

 
More Swarovski crystals with this China Jade.  The necklace is made by MagdaleneJewels
