Stormy Jasper Morning

About this design:

This three-strand piece uses unusual turquoise jasper rounds I found at Lima Beads. Combined with the fire-painted copper pendant and copper spacers, the jasper looks like a southern sky just before a thunderstorm -- great moody colors! Copper has a mind of its own, but this time I got it to cooperate with the colors in the jasper!
