~ Picture Jasper ~


About this design:

These are the 1st jasper beads I have purchased. I was inspired after seeing all the beautiful jasper in the other womens designs on this site ;).

Made this for my sis's birthday. She likes chunky bracelets.

I was also inspired by one of Deb's pieces where she made 2 different size simple loops on a bead. Thanks Deb! I really like the look ;)

Components:

Picture Jasper box clasp, Picture Jasper 8 mm rounds, black crystal, silver plated chain and artistic wire /silver.

    NICE!! That clasp is pretty darn awesome. So is the entire bracelet. Also than Lorelei Eurto for the different size loops. I saw it in a necklace she made.

    Striking! That clasp is pretty awesome too as are your photos. What kind of camera did you use?

    Thank you Wanda and Gail.

    Gail I used my Iphone. Not sure how they would come out since I took them outside on a cloudy day.

    My sister did love it. Yay. but I need to make it one link bigger for her. does anyone else deal with sizing issues. I’ve made bracelets for women who have teeny tiny wrists and say 71/2″ wrists. i’m, always adjusting ;)

    Beautiful bracelet! I love that clasp, I’ve never seen anything like it. I love how you paired the earthy picture jasper with the black faceted beads. It’s just stunning!
    I’ve had to do some size adjustments for custom orders and I found it to be a lot easier with some simple paper forms I’ve made in different sizes. That way I can wrap the bracelet around it to easily see how it will fit that size wrist.

    Thank you Angela and Franny :) .

    Thanks for the tip Angela- seems pretty simple. The size of the bead needs to be taken into account too, right? sigh, I drive myself crazy sometimes. ha ha

    Franny – when I read “extending my arm”….. that me crack up. Thanks ;)

    What a good idea to put picture jasper with black! I’ve found that the paleness of the stone needs a little something extra, which you’ve found with the high contrast. Good one!

    Peggy3 says:

    Thanks Laud. I agree about the contrast
