Impression Jasper Designs


About this design:

My first ever Fresh Pick (dated 03/03/13) was built around Impression Jasper and other elements I thought would complement the jasper. Here are two necklaces constructed around this Fresh Pick.

Components:

Impression Jasper barrel & rondelle 8mm, Impression Jasper thin pillow 30 x 22mm - LB. Amazonite sqr. 7mm. LB, Amazonite sqr. tubes, Imitation coral ovals. Antique silver clasp & bail - LB. Antique silver beads, An Impression Jasper focal in the first and an improvised focal in the second.

    I love the blue and orange combo, very nice. I have enjoyed all the things you post. Don’t be afraid to add some ‘bling’ to your work…I must admit I enjoy a little sparkle with my stones ;-)

    Love the pop of coral – - and I think both pendants work well. This has a nice sense of proportion, Ed. Keep on stringing !

    Lovely design. I am a fan of Amazonite, and you used it very nicely in this necklace. Keep on beading, you have a good eye for color.

    I like both necklaces. I might actually like your improvised pendant better.

    Thanks everybody for your comments.

    Yes, I was bothered a little bit by the size of the store bought pendent but it was what the wife wanted.

    I love the soft color of Amazonite and actually submitted a fresh pick yesterday using it as a major player.
