This long necklace of some 280 beads celebrates Mother Earth. I have used squares cushions of Jasper, along with beads that are star-faceted, round faceted, Swarovski crystals in green and brown and bronze colored, rice-shaped, cultured freshwater pearls each separated by gold-plated seed beads to create this necklace. It has a copper toggle making it easy to wrap it 3 times around your neck, or you can choose to wear it twice wrapped or singles stranded, as you wish. You will love the colors and the versatility of this eye-catching long necklace. Perfect for your seasonal wardrobe!
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. Red Creek Jasper, is named after the stream that runs through the area it was first discovered in China. It is also known as ‘Cherry Creek’ Jasper. This stone is known for the swirling combinations of earthy browns, green, yellow and reds that give each bead a unique color pattern. Moukaite Jasper is found in Australia and the different combinations of clay and iron oxide gives it a wide range of colors, from white to mustard yellow to brick red and mauve.
