    It's absolutely perfect. The right size and the right height. Is this one yours? (I can't remember...)

    Thank you! They came in just under US$400, as the bunnies are good quality, highly icy/glassy with no inclusions!

    The material looks very very nice, but the setting idea is genius and the two components together are just fabulous

    I love the bunnies. I am a year of the rabbit though so I may be a little biased. I would also have to get dogs and monkeys for my girls :whistle:.

    I wore my big red (brownish but still grouped as red) jadeite pendant today and a friend wondered how big are my biggest scenery pendants.

    Here's a shot of the the largest. The chartreuse measures 49mm in length for the jade :)

    A shot of my ring because I love it so.

    I’m in love with this piece. It’s not only such a beautiful translucent piece, excellent polish, but it reminds me of my son’s adorable fat legs when he was a baby, and I want to squeeze it!!

    When I see fat, luscious, generously proportioned icy jadeite, I just want to bite into them! So evocative of one thing or the other!

    Sent this jadeite carving to be set with a bail but it was fugly and totally spoilt the symmetry of the waves. Threw a minor hissy fit and I suggested covering the hole that was punched too low with a diamond.

    Turned out much better. Photos by the settings shop.

    What is the second pair of earrings supposed to be? Goldfish? Frog? Those are some droopy-looking cheeks? Butts? Melon? :confused:

    Now that you've said winter melon leaves they are giving off serious luscious candied winter melon pastry vibes. I ate one this week. The filling was clear and lush like your leaves. Lol I've got an urge to bite those leaves :lol::eek2:

    Lol J is feeling very pleased for recommending the leaves to me. They have some thickness and don't need backing.

    Seems like a strange pairing; does it signify something when goldfish and winter melon leaves are paired together?

    @Burmesedaze The last bi looks wet ::) The other two are so beautifuly colored... I love these round poked things & just about any jade as long as it ain't green.

    I hear of people getting good jadeite pieces re-polished / carved / finished, as stone is more likely to be good than the work; any truth to this?
