Leopard Skin Jasper in a Newer Mode


About this design:

I got some chain the other day, (Ted doesn't like it but I did) Thought I would try something different. LOL Also in one of the pictures there is a pair of Black onyx earrings I put together today also

Components:

Leopardskin Jasper, Black Onyx, silver beads, and rather large chain (for Me that is)

    The Leopardskin Jasper and the Onyx go beautifully together … two stones I would not have thought have pairing. And they make such a great visual statement, it’s all you need … the chain connects it all.

    I love the chain – and he’s outnumbered by all of us WE WIN! Besides, who is wearing it you or him? I think it’s a perfect fit for the size of the stones. Love it. Earrings are pretty too. Love onyx.

    My goodness I guess I should start looking back on my own creations. I cannot believe all the nice comments. I did pick up some things I may still want to add more though just do not know.

    I think this is a beauty with the chain. It’s nice and simple. Probably lighter too. Great combinations.
