Artistic Jasper - Is!

About this design:

I love these large round artistic jasper beads! They are accented by my favorite "black" bead which is rainbow obsidian and then tiny antique gold finish rondelles. I put the chain around back to cut down the weight of the piece.


30mm artistic jasper puff coins, 17mm rainbow obsidian rounds,4mm antique gold finish (not real gold or gold filled) rondelles, Bali style leaf toggle clasp

    Very pretty!!! I like the artistic jasper, too. :-) Your choice of “black” stones is great with the jasper.

    I also use chain to help take some weight off the necklace when using big stones. ;)

    Thank you so much! The chain is just an antique gold/bronze finish curb chain.
