A Green Zebra

About this design:

I have been saving the Green Zebra Jasper for quite some time. When I purchased the stones it was with my daughter in mind. We have been traveling for a couple weeks now and while having a quit morning I finally turned the green Zebra into a necklace.


Green Zebra Jasper, Red Aventurine, Lapis, Mother of Pearl sticks. I do not remember what the two small green beads are. SS bail, clasp, and other findings.

    Thanks all for the comments.

    I think the Zebra jasper is a strong stone that will dominate almost any design but it will also also command attention. This makes it both a challenge ad a joy to work with.

    Puppychick, you should give them a chance to inspire your design!

    I like! I bought some of the zebra stones, too, but haven’t used them yet. Your design brings out their beauty.

    are truly stunning and very tribal. I just love the design and the colors especially using the
    green zebra jasper. I have seen handmade beads from Africa similar to what you have created. Very nice !!!
