My favourite variety of jasper is “picasso jasper”, that earned its name due to picture-like markings. I swear sometimes the beads I get look like landscape or abstract paintings. And beautiful too.
As you can see I’m still fond of the spiky and asymmetric style when it comes to semi-precious stone pendants.
Some new steampunk pendants.
Available in the steampunk section of my Etsy shop.
I had wanted to make this for a long time and had the wire wrapped part pre-made, in my drawer. I just couldn’t find the right beads. While browsing Etsy I found African glass beads recycled from old bottles. They’re beautifully irregular and come in variety of colours and shapes. I also used some artisan lampwork beads, a patina starfish charm and silver plated “bali” beads.
Mostly coral, but also some turquoise, coconut wood and other materials.
Available in the earrings section of my Etsy shop.
I couldn’t quite catch all the beauty of this stone on a photo, but I promise you, it shines on the whole surface, and the colours are a smooth gradient from yellowish green to almost turquoise. One of the most beautiful stones I’ve worked with.
