The Many Faces of Jasper

I was very excited to see the Etsy Treasury created by a fellow etsy seller featuring Jasper! Here's a BRIEF list of the different types of Jasper commonly used in Jewelry making:

Red Jasper
Ocean Jasper
Fancy Jasper
Brecciated Jasper
Poppy Jasper
Sesame Jasper
Picasso Jasper
Picture Jasper

The Treasury will be up until Wednesday, March 18th and you can view it by clicking the image below.

Just a word to the wise: Jasper is one of those stones that can look like other stones like aventurine, charoite, agate, calcite, etc. Always be sure to ask questions if you have them and purchase your beads and jewelry from trusted sellers!

I Like Custom Work...Remember?

And, here's more! Not only do I create picture frames to match that perfect event, but jewelry to match the perfect sentiment!

Lapis & Moonstone on Sterling Silver Chain.

Multitude of Gemstones and wood beaded Necklace & Bracelet.

Glass Eye to Ward off the Evil Eye with various glass beads.

Chalcedony faceted beads on Sterling Silver chain.

Two pairs of Mother's Earrings!
Left: Tourmaline, Peridot & Quartz.
Right: Blue Topaz & Ruby.

Please don't be shy about asking me to create custom work for you! It's true, there are some artists that do not like customized pieces - but, I say bring on a beautiful challenge!
