About this design:

I had been lurking at these Zebra Jasper Horse Eye beads for a while, not knowing how I should use them, until I found those awesome cooper filigree links at LB! I love the combo :0)


Zebra Jasper, Copper Filigree Links and toggle clasp

    It is beautiful, but how about earrings? This necklace would go over dark chocolate or black sleeveless dress wonderfully

    This gemstone and those filigrees were just meant to be together…..some would call it fate…..

    Yes Sali Jo, it felt like fate :)

    Julia; I’m afraid the earrings would be too big, the stones are 20X40mm, kind of heavy too, unless I only use the links… :)

    Thanks Ladies!

    Very pretty necklace!!! I agree with Sali Jo. I think the filigrees would make pretty earrings. You could dangle a coordinating pearl or Swar. crystal…. :D

    The filigree is a wonderful complement to those lush zebra jasper stones, Johanne! And I agree with the ladies above – you could use just the filigrees for earrings to go with this!

    Johanne, this is just beautiful! Wonderful contrast between the stones and the filigree! :D

    I agree about using the filigrees for earrings, with a crystal or pearl dangle. :)

    Your necklace is beautiful. It is a very rich
    design. Some have suggested a pearl or crystal for
    the errings, but I would suggest a small round
    brown/cream Zebra Jasper bead with the filigree to pull the errings together with the necklace.
    Just try to match as close to the same color and
    markings in your necklace as possible. Either way
    the filigree by it self or with the Jasper will look nice.
