The focal of this necklace is a remarkable dragon’s blood jasper pendant with deep greens splashed with an intense red matrix—the hallmark of dragon blood jasper. The large pendant is octagonal in a donut style with a hole in the center. Double leather cords loop through the center and are captured on each side by pairs of copper tube beads with an embossed design and deep green porcelain beads. The result is an urban look with a touch of the primitive. I used a hook clasp on the ends of the leather cords to complete the design.
The necklace measures 25 inches in length, but this can be adjusted if you would like. The dragon blood jasper pendant measures 2 inches in diameter. I designed this necklace to be worn by either a man or a woman as it is a versatile style. Dragon blood jasper was used in jewelry by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans and continues to be a favored stone for its intense colors. The ancients believed that Dragon Blood Jasper increased courage, strength, and vitality. These powerful elements combine with the design of the necklace to create a distinctive urban-primitive look.
