Details

EARTHLY ART is an exquisite handmade necklace for the woman who wants something unique. Just look at that amazing paintbrush jasper pendant. EARTHLY ART, a one of a kind (OOAK) beaded necklace, was created with a paintbrush jasper pendant, riverstone, Swarovski crystals and copper. This is truly a piece of gemstone jewelry that will receive much attention when worn. EARTHLY ART was carefully handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.


+ Paintbrush jasper pendant: app. 40mm x 30mm x 6mm
+ Riverstone: app. 8mm and 6mm
+ Swarovski crystals: faceted 4mm "jet" Swarovski crystal bicones
+ Metal: copper
+ Clasp: copper s-clasp set; 30mm x 12mm
+ Length: app. 17.5 cm / 44.5 cm
+ Pendant drop (including bail): app. 2" / 5.1 cm


The true star of the show is the amazing paintbrush jasper (sometimes called "picture jasper" or "landscape jasper") pendant. It looks like someone dribbled India ink across the stone and the ink spread and feathered out. Look at the fabulous detail - almost like someone took a single hair from a paint brush and dabbed tiny spots of ink! Oftentimes, paintbrush jasper is also called landscape jasper because fanciful "scenery' is often seen. The background of this stone is shades of beige with light amber streaks. The "art" is either a very, very dark brown or black (it looks different to me in different light). I took photos of both sides of the pendant - please take a look because, while similar, they are also different. The pendant is framed at the top and bottom with copper daisy spacers and 2mm copper beads. It is wire-wrapped to the main body of the necklace with a copper headpin.

To highlight the pendant perfectly, I used beautiful riverstone in two different sizes to add texture to the necklace. The riverstone is an off white color but has sublime swirls and dots of other colors running through it, colors that mimic the pendant. The larger stones are 8mm in size and are clustered in groups of three until you get to the end of the necklace. In between the groups of riverstone clusters, a smaller, 6mm riverstone was used. The smaller stone is flanked on each side by faceted "jet" Swarovski crystal bicones and 2mm copper beads. The Swarovski crystals were added to complement the dark color in the pendant and to add a bit of sparkle to EARTHLY ART.

The ends of the necklace were crimped with sterling silver crimp tubes which were then covered with copper crimp covers to mimic a 3mm beads. A beautiful copper s-clasp with circles and dots finishes EARTHLY ART perfectly!


Paintbrush Jasper is believed to be a healing stone that promotes strength; it also helps to improve energy and accept new ideas. River Stone is known for its regenerative effect on the body and for its ability to relieve anxiety; it safeguards against polluting our minds with worry and fear. Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize the barriers which are in the path of personal development.

EARTHLY ART will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals.

***Please be aware that not all computer monitors show colors exactly the same. The colors of the stones are extremely close to the actual color on my monitor. They may appear lighter or darker on yours.

Jasper gemstone can offer playfulness or solemnity to jewelry. In this case the veins of dark inclusions give a somber note. Very classic jewelry.
