Dalmation Jasper Puppy Feet


About this design:

This set is made from smaller stones. Probably 10x10 black onyx and 9x7 oval dalmation jasper. I used black onyx round spacers, and attached black chain with small black seed beads. Used silver crimp bead covers and finished off with a black magnetic clasp.

Components:

See Above dalmation jasper black onyx and black chain. I made 2 sets of earrings both shown with this necklace. One is black onyx and silver beads on fish hook only. The other pair is made of the dalmation jasper and black onyx on fish hook style.

    Edgy and super cool!! I love the black chain with the dalmation jasper and onyx, are you sure there isn’t a little bit of a goth/metalhead trapped in you somewhere?? LOL I also LOVE the name, Puppy Feet, perfect! :D

    Cute name for this set, Faith. And I love the bead combination with the black chain! Like Ravin, I’m wondering if you are uncovering some long-buried goth inside you??? ;)

    Wow and good morning chickies, right back at you.
    Thank you. I wore this yesterday. I love the clasp but it is the same one I had on another necklace the black faceted onyx and thought since this was lighter weight it might stay fastened. No such luck. So I’ll search for another black even though I loved this one don’t want to loose it.

    This is so me. I love the black chain. Where did you ever find the black magnetic clasp? Love it. Love when you make two pair of earrings, looks like a whole new look.

    Thank you Linda and Sue. I got the black clasp at the local bead store here in Keystone. I am not sure where she gets her things but I know she has some things that are on Lima Beads site and I found one thing I got at her store at Wal Mart later. The chain will be a surprise to everyone. It came from Lowes where they sell the swing chains and I suppose the swag lamp or plant hanger chain? I don’t really know but it came off a spool and is metal with I think a black enamel paint on it. It has a really nice feel to it.

Add your thoughts!
