Jasper and Swarovski Crystal Necklace
Jasper is the opaque version of quartz. As with quartz, it adopts all the colors of the minerals that flow through it as it forms. This jasper reminds me of the painted hills of Montana and the rich red clay I use when I throw pottery on the wheel. There is just something absolutely sexy about playing in red mud and the great shape and color of these stones reflects that sexiness.
The base tone of this pentagonal cut jasper set is a reddish brown that seems positively fertile. I’ve accented it with similar color Swarovski crystals and finished it with a sterling lobster clasp.
