Desert Dreams

About this design:

These stones reminded me of the Grand Canyon. The river that runs thru it is a green blue color because of the copper that gets into it and was the inspiration for the accents


19 inch Picture Jasper faceted teardrop and smooth tube with copper seed bead spacers. A solid copper S-hook finishes the necklace.

    Wonderful color. The only picture jasper I’ve used is the 4 x 13 mm rectangles in a surfer style necklace. I’m going to have to try some bigger pieces.
