New Beginnings

About this design:

I love copper in jewelry and was so happy to find these great brushed copper beads. I felt the bright warmth of the copper would bring out the warm tones in the paintbrush jasper and the garnets would enhance the reds in the stones.

    Oh Kat, I’m right there with you on copper!
    This turned out beautifully! Love your design! And the addition of garnet…..perfect!

    I’ve got some Paintbrush Jasper in my stash. Do you think it’s the same stone as Coffee Bean Jasper?(I have some it in my stash too.) They seem the same to me.

    Pretty design and the copper is perfect with it. I have some and it is called Crazy Horse Jasper. Tis confusing.

    Both of you are right. It has been called Crazy Horse, Landscape jasper, artistic jasper and coffee bean jasper. I was looking it up online to get the metaphysical properties and I had to laugh at how many names it has. I guess it depends on the seller. At least we know one thing…it’s jasper! :-)
