This beautiful stone was from a good friend of the family, who only knew the name of the stone in chinese which I dont speak. I dont know the name of the stone but it is so beautiful and it has an amazing sheen.
I wanted the stone to be the main attraction to show off its beautiful clarity, hence the simplicity of this design.
The smaller beads are jungle jasper beads while the focal pendant is ocean jasper. I wanted the colors to represent colors from a jungle.....earth tone, dark and lighter moss green and a little ray of light here and there. So, I combined them with greige rondelle crystals and some rich metallic dark chocolate seed beads.
I bought this pendant many years ago that I have forgotten the name of this stone. It felt calm, peaceful, serene when I held it in my hand. I wanted simplicity for this design to reflect what I felt so I strung some natural jasper for the chain to complete it.
Materials used : Gold swirl with rose lampwork beads, wheatberry czech fire polished beads,
lemon gold metal round beads, rosaline swarovski beads and gold colored spacers and round toggle claps
Soft, sweet with a hint of romance.....
