Leapordskin Jasper Pendant Necklace

About this design:

I love this Leapordskin Jasper pendant and was looking for some beads to go with it. At first I thought I would wire wrap the pendant, but then I thought about wire wrapping a bead and using it for a bail. I used the same concept for the clasp. I like how it worked out.

This item is for sale in my shop


62X42mm Leapordskin Jasper pendant, 16mm Zebra Onyx rounds, 8mm Apple Jasper rounds, 6mm and 10mm copper rounds and 16mm corrugated copper rounds. Wire wrapped Zebra Onyx rounds used for bail and clasp.

    Lovely necklace. I have one of the Lepordskin pendants and hadn’t decided what to do with it. You gave me some ideads. Love your wire work on the bail and clasp. Could you teach that to us?

    Totally awesome!!!! I’ve been wanting to try the herringbone wrap – I am inspired to look through my stash, select a stone and take the plunge! :)

    This is absolutely wonderful – I love the herringbone wrapping you did. I have instructions for this but have yet to attempt it.

    I really really love this necklace … really. The combination of beads,copper and wire wrapping makes it a starkly stunning piece. The pendant is a fabulous example of Leopardskin Jasper, which I love. I don’t think I’ve seen a more gorgeous example. Also loved the work on your website. Best ~ Linda

    I’ve made a necklace with this pendant, copper, and leopardskin beads and I love it, but your’s is fabulous. Your wirework is gorgeous. I haven’t seen this pattern is wirework, but I love it. Where did you learn this?

    Thank you all for your wonderful comments. I was especially pleased with how this turned out. I saw the herringbone wire work in some magazine (I think) and just tried it. Works best on round or oval beads, not flatter ones.

    I know I said earlier that this is not my style. My style is continually changing the longer I am on the LIMA BEADS site. I would wear this in a heart beat I am truely in love with this piece. I have come back to look at it so often. This is an artwork in itself. You definitely have a god given talent even if you found the wire work in a book. It takes a good eye and a creative mind to do something like this. I love it.
