The Jasper beads I have used to make this necklace has the most interesting colorings and markings, almost as if it was made by an artistic. Hence the name Artistic Jasper. The beads have a matte finish to them, which adds to their appeal. I have incorporated a arrowhead pendant and two tribal beads to the necklace. An extension chain allows the necklace to be lengthened to 19 inches.
