~ 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 ;)


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?

    Peggy3 says:

    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.

    very nice!….also elegant, but could be worn anywhere, anytime…..caught myself extending my arm to the PC screen to admire it on MY wrist!…fits perfectly!LOL!

    Peggy3 says:

    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 ;)

    Laud says:

    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!

  13. Peggy3
    Peggy3 says:

    Thanks Laud. I agree about the contrast
