Sky Blue Jasper and Copper

About this design:

Sky blue jasper is such a neat stone. It is color enhanced and has beautiful rich colors. I've used all but 4 of the pebbles I had so now I have to see if I can find more. However, there's still a great grunch of the sticks. They don't lend themselves very well to the type of designs I prefer to make. Didn't have any small round jasper beads so I had to improvise..... a few pieces of African jade and African turquoise and the problem was solved! Hurrah for the stash!
