Saint Patrick's Day Faux Jade

I made these faux jade beads several months ago, intending to make a bracelet. I planned to use Stretch Magic jewelry cord and finish the bracelet without a clasp. I couldn't figure out how to finish it off so I put the beads away. I still can't figure it out (I may need to use a clasp) but I was looking for something green to post today, St. Patrick's Day, and these faux jade tile beads were just the ticket.

The running horse is my own design, it was the first time I have made tile shaped beads and I like the look. This horse design could appear as faux ivory, too. You never know what I might make next. But maybe I should finish this bracelet first.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
