Picture Jasper and Gold Necklace and Earrings

in: Necklace



Picture Jasper and Gold Necklace and Earrings -  Wild Horse Picture Jasper - I love the name of this gemstone! Each bead is like its own landscape drawing, in rich, earthy greens and browns. I have accented the gemstones with corrugated gold filled beads, as the gold brings out the richness of the jasper. This necklace combines picture jasper rectangles ( 18 x 25mm) with ovals (13 x 18mm), and fastens with a simple, hand forged clasp made from heavy gauge, gold filled wire.

I have included a pair of earrings with this listing. The earrings feature jasper ovals topped with sparkly crystal bead caps, and hang from 14K Gold Filled leverback ear wires.

This statement necklace measures 22" in length, and the earrings 1 7/8" in length. 

All metals used in this design are Gold Filled.

A note about Gold Filled Jewelry- The layer of gold alloy on gold-plated jewelry is so minuscule it is barely noticeable. Gold-filled jewelry has 100x more gold alloy than gold plated and because that layer is so much thicker, it means gold-filled jewelry lasts longer and stands up to wear and tear better than gold plated. One small scratch on a gold-plated piece would expose the jeweler's brass underneath.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  


NOTE: 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this necklace will be donated to Miracle Horse Rescue, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping me help those who cannot help themselves!
