Artisan Marble Pendant with Brecciated Red Jasper Necklace and Earrings

in: Necklace



Artisan Marble Pendant with Brecciated Red Jasper Necklace and Earrings- This beautiful gemstone necklace features a pendant that has been enhanced with a sandblasted portrait of a barrel racer - complete with horse, rider and barrel-  by artist Carol Dekle Foss (Terra Rustica Jewelry). It is nothing short of amazing! The texture created by the sandblasting creates a 3-D image directly onto this gorgeous tear drop shape marble pendant.  I wanted to highlight that reddish brown color of the horse and rider in the pendant, so I used a variety of Brecciated Red Jasper shaped gemstones, and Red Tiger Eye beads. The beads, to me, exemplify Mother Nature's capabilities - please do zoom in on the images!

The Pendant has been wrapped in copper wire to a gorgeous solid copper bail made by Keirsten Giles - I have waited over 5 years to use this bail in just the right piece of jewelry! The Jasper and Red Tiger Eye are flanked with tiny, 3mm faceted copper-clad hematite beads. The necklace closes securely with a nice size copper lobster style clasp into any of the 2" extender copper chain links.

I have added a pair of lightweight earrings to this listing, each comprised of one square, Brecciated Red Jasper Bead. The earrings measure just approximately 2 1/4" length, with copper kidney-shaped styled ear wires. 

Necklace Measurements: Overall length: 23", PLUS a 2" copper extender chain; Marble Barrel Racing Horse Pendant: 3" in length; Brecciated Red Jasper Beads: 15mm square and 13 x 18mm rectangles; Red Tiger Eye Beads: 12mm Square; Copper Lobster-Style Clasp: 1 1/8" in length 

A gorgeous gemstone necklace to be enjoyed for years to come!
