Ocean Jasper Earrings


About this design:

Here's some more of those gorgeous gemstone slabs I bought. I really love the way these are cut because you can see the incredible design inside the stone. Mother Nature at her finest. I added Roman glass to these and oxidized sterling silver.

Components:

ocean jasper slabs, Roman glass, oxidized sterling silver beads and wire

    Hi KatsAllThat. Yes, these slabs came drilled. That’s one of the things on my list of skills I still need to learn, drilling stones. Thanks everyone for the nice comments. You’ll probably see more of these slabs in the future cause I bought a lot. I couldn’t stop myself. I need buying beads anonymous meetings!

    Ah yes, step 1 – buy beads, step 2 – buy more beads, step 3 – buy findings to go with beads, step 4 …..

    Gorgeous earrings! You’ve brought out the natural beauty of the stones perfectly, and the roman glass is just the right touch.

    These are fabulous also! The Ocean Jasper reminds me of the markings on a Pinto pony.
