These attractive jasper beads are enhanced by facetted glass beads throughout the necklace, and set off by a central focal bead which has been hand made in fine silver.
The bead is made using Art Clay Silver (silver clay, which when fired leaves a piece of solid fine silver, .999 quality), which has a delicate floral pattern printed on its surface. The bead has then been tumble polished to give it a lovely soft shine. The beads are riban jasper, which has a reddish wood-type pattern to it in mixed red-brown and cream colouring. They are set off beautifully by sparkling facetted glass beads. The clasp is sterling silver, and echoes the floral pattern on the focal bead and is very attractive in its own right â€“ you can see the clasp in the fifth image. The necklace is approximately 17 inches long.
