Earthy brown rounds of smooth Picture Jasper beads are used to make this stretch bracelet. The beads are strung in groups of six, separated by US made faceted copper-plated Pewter beads. I have used 2 strands of elastic stretch cords to ensure a snap-free stretch and longevity of the bracelet, will role over easily over your hand.
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. Picture Jasper is so named because of the earthy desert landscape 'scenes' painted by Nature. The color banding and 'painting' is due to the Iron content in the Jasper and the laying down of other minerals in the gemstone matrix.
