As I have mentioned previously I thoroughly enjoy making these stacked bracelets. Finding the right beads to pair together was challenging, but I think I found another great combination. Smooth round beads of dark chocolate and cream Zebra Jasper along with hand faceted red wine Garnet beads, all separated by cubic brass spacer beads with a rose gold finish. Don't you love it? and I do not mean dark chocolate and red wine!
Jaspers have been used as ornamental and gemstones from ancient times. They are microcrystalline Quartz in association with a variety of other minerals which give the Jaspers colorful patterns and bands. Jaspers are often named according to its color or patterns. Zebra Jasper is so called because of the dark brown bands and stripes in a creamy pink and tan matrix.
Garnets are a very popular gemstone and is the birthstone for the month of January. Garnets come in all colors but blue, the red variety being the most popular. Smaller sized Garnets are common, and larger sized stones are rarer and have more value. Giving the gift of Garnets is thought to bring good luck to the receiver by increasing their sense of security and self-esteem. It is also the gemstone to celebrate the 18th wedding anniversary.
