Jazzy Jasper

About this design:

The turquoise orbicular jasper was my inspiration for this necklace. That said, I’ve always wanted to do something casual with a little jazz. That’s why I added the second little handmade chain. That’s all Czech glass beads and a couple Swarovski globe beads ( gotta use those globe beads, since I’ve collected them for a year). Another leather strap necklace. I also have a grey and a sage color leather strap for other projects. I love these straps. Hope they sell!

Components:

I used the following: tan leather strap, turquoise orbicular jasper barrel and 8mm beads, bronzite faceted rounds 6 mm - these from LB. Picture jasper rounds 6 mm from my stash. Czech glass assorted combo packs- I mixed 2 of those and added a few beads from my stash. Freeform magnesite disc beads and big gold spacer beads.

    Beautiful Robin….I love your choice of beads! You’ve given me an idea on how to use my Charoite slices that I’ve had for so long. Your straps are great, and go well with the rest of your beads.

    This is gorgeous! I would think it would do very well. There are many boutiques here in Colorado where it would sell quickly.

    Robin – so lovely! Sometimes I like shiny, and sometimes I love earthy, beautiful, natural colors and shapes – they can be comforting, one of those necklaces you just want to keep touching…

    Beautiful Robin. Looks like it would be comfortable to wear. Love the way you mix it all up with the variety of beads, the metal components and the multi strands. A great set.

    Great set. All the different textures and shapes are so beautiful together. The leather strap is a fine addition. I bet you have good luck selling.

    Wonderful! I love this one! The large focal bead paired with the magnesite slices is fantastic. I really like the secondary chain you made–such a feminine complement to the rustic feel of the other. This would be super hard for me to sell! :)
