    Hmmmmmmm They remind me of porcelain jasper. Any other “experts” want to chime in?

    This is a beautiful design and color combo, Wendy! Both the necklace and bracelet are terrific! Do you make earrings, too?

    Yes, I made earrings too, but not until after I took the photos. I still have to get pics of the earrings!

    I was just curious, because I’m always making earrings to go with everything I make — sometimes more than one pair! LOL

    Very pretty design! Love the colors. I also agree that it must be one of those hundreds of kinds of jasper! :D

    Not sure what the stone is, but it is lovely! If my lbs cant identifuy it, I dont buy it. I make them put it aside & find out what it is, then when I come back I can decide if I want it or not. I always have to know what I am working with so I can inform my customers.

    I’m not sure why the bead store doesn’t label their gemstones. I have asked them in the past…they still don’t!

    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Oh, I am sorry they don’t cooperate with you! They should label their stones! Otherwise how can you know what you have?

    Color wise it looks like brown snowflake jasper but pattern wise it looks like ….JASPER? :)

    When you take pictures of the earrings could you give us a really close-up shot?

    BTW great design.

    sssh- Lynn, I have to whisper it like this j-a-s-p-e-r so as not to attract too much attention!

    I just looked this up on a google site, and really can’t tell. One shot really reminds me of Mexican porcelain jasper… we need a clearer view and more of a close up, Froggy Chick. ;)
