About this design:

This is my first beadwork project. My daughter helped me build the necklace last Christmas.


Unknown stones and silver findings. I think the stones are dyed jasper.

    This is really nice. I agree that it’s impression jasper because of the patterns in the stones. It makes the colors blend even better! :)

    Like several of you I also suspect the stones are dyed impression jasper. Did not think to record the stone types when getting started in this hobby. Thanks for your comments
