About this design:

I had a few pieces of Turquoise impression jasper that were too coppery brown to use in another piece I designed. So I put them with copper chain that I patina-ed and other beads that were the color of patina-ed copper. I made both an amazonite pair of earring and a fluorite pair of earring. Second picture show the piece made from the rest of the turquoise impression jasper


Turquoise impression Jasper, Amazonite, blue green fluorite, teal fresh water pearls,cooper chain and toggles.
