JASPER for JANUARY

I want to share the beauty and a bit of info of stones that I’ve searched out selected many times over: JASPER! There are many different types of Jasper in the world and it has been determined that environmental influences contribute to the colors and striations of these expressive stones.

While the pendants shown here are already owned, this is a look/see at a variety. You can be sure that I will continue to create pendants and bracelets with Jasper as the focal point.
