This necklace was made using natural gray pear shaped mookaite jasper 25x30 mm. This glamorous stone was bezel set using .925 sterling silver gallery wire. The backplate is embellished with flame like shapes hand made in copper. The pendant has been oxidized to highlight and to contrast the beautiful color on the stone. A layer of Renaissance Jewelers wax is applied to preserve the patina. The backplate is not oxidized and was polished to a matte -brushed finish.
The necklace was made using flexible stringing wire along with coral fossil jasper, noreena jasper, crazy agate, gray mookaite jasper, and 4mm sterling silver spacer beads.
The necklace is 17" long. The Pendant measures 2 inches long and 1 1/5 inches wide. The closure is a 12mm sterling silver lobster clasp.
