It is hard to be surprised by nature. Her diversity and artistry is an ever constant presence in my life and yet, She has outdone Herself with these amazing scenic jasper stones. Each stone has a story to tell and it is told in bold coloring of deep brown on beige to cream to almost gray backgrounds. Each tear drop shaped stone, seems to have been touched by an artist's brush - scenes appear and disappear - lines and circles, dots and swirls all play out on canvases of stone in stunningly beautiful designs. As companions to these large, ultra impressive stones, I used small, flat (with a raised center) sterling silver beads to separate and highlight the energy of the gemstones. The necklace ends in a regally large, sterling silver circle toggle with an impressive, banded silver bar. Not for the faint of heart but definitely for the heart that is filled with excitement and a sense of wonder and a wild and wonderful ability to make bold and decisive fashion statements. Length: 20"
