I just love this stone, from the rich deep reds to the creamy dusky pinks, and all the swirls and patterns – Mother Nature at her best! (I’m excited, can you tell??!!) lol.
The stone is Shady Mesa Jasper from California and is surrounded by deep red and metallic Dusky pink seed beads in a peyote stitch bezel. One side of the stone is encased with gorgeous deep red rectangle genuine Garnets and pink seed beads. The other side has dusky pink Czech fire polished crystal and garnet coloured seed beads with picot edging that really enhances the colours of this beautiful stone. Pendant is backed in black ultra suede.
Necklace has a deep red and dusky metallic pink undulating herringbone rope with silver plated cord ends and a sterling silver ‘S’ clasp,
Just beautiful, this necklace would set off any little black dress (or big black dress in my case!!), the beaded rope feels sexy and slinky to wear.
Pendant measures 4.5cms x 9cms (1 & 3/4 X 3 & 1/2 inches) from top of bail to tip of pendant. . Necklace rope is 48cms (19 inches) long.
