Red Garnet and Leopardskin Jasper Nugget Handmade Artisan Necklace

Details

Intriguing leopardskin jasper, garnet and turtle jasper come together in this handmade "Give Me Strength" necklace. The focal piece is a turtle jasper pendant in a free-form teardrop shape. The background of dove gray allows the crystalline bursts to pop out resembling flowers blooming. An antique silver beaded bail by TierraCast is used to attach the pendant. For the necklace I used unique leopardskin jasper nuggets. Each bead is unique and can include any combination of the following tones: beige, tan, yellow, orange, red, pink, brown, gray, or black. Too add extra richness I added two sizes of deep, rich red garnet rounds. Small antique silver pewter daisy spacers separate the beads. To finish off the necklace I used larger antique silver beads with sterling silver wire guards to protect the beading wire and to ensure longevity to the necklace. Via Murano moonlight twisted tornado crimps will securely hold the beading wire. For the closure I used a silver beaded toggle produced in the United States by TierraCast. This closure also matches the pendant bail. TierraCast has a strong reputation for quality jewelry findings in the United States.

The overall length of the necklace is 21 inches or 53.3 centimeters in length. The gemstone pendant will add an additional 1 1/4 inch or 3 centimeter length to the overall drape of the necklace. The necklace will come packaged in a complimentary jewelry pouch for storage or gift-giving. As an added bonus, I will include a matching pair of dangle earrings using the leopardskin jasper nuggets, garnets and silver-filled ear wires by TierraCast.

Leopard Skin Jasper does come from various places but the largest and most well known supply is found in Aquas Calientes, in Chihuahua, Mexico. It is considered a Shaman stone or a sacred stone to the Native Americans. The second largest place is in Brazil. Leopard skin jasper is a well known spiritual healer, which works well for most of the chakras including Heart chakra, sacral chakra, root chakra and the Solar Plexus. It is claimed to help heal emotions and to help connect man to animal spirits.

Garnets were used in the former Czechoslovakia as far back as the Bronze Age, and in Egypt more than five thousand years ago. They were used in Sumeria around 2100 B.C. and in Sweden between 1000 and 2000 B.C. They were also popular in ancient Greek and Roman civilizations. Garnet balances energy, bringing serenity or passion as appropriate, and can inspire love and balance. Garnet is associated primarily with the root chakra, but also with the heart chakra.

Caring for your necklace: To ensure longevity and years of enjoyment always apply this rule of thumb. Make your jewelry the last thing you put on, and the first thing you take off. To not spray perfumes directly onto your jewelry. Handmade beaded jewelry and gemstone jewelry will need to be cleaned differently because of the presence of the beads and gems; generally, a jewelry cleaner should not touch the gems, as it can wear off the shiny polish or be absorbed by a porous stone. Take a soft cloth and gently wipe off the necklace and pendant to remove body oils after use. Keep separate or in it's jewelry pouch to prevent scratching against other jewelry.

Note: Please be aware that not all monitors will show colors exactly the same. The colors may appear lighter or darker based on the type of monitor you have. As I edit my photos I ensure they are as exact as they can be to my jewelry pieces. Natural and artificial lighting can enhance or diffuse shades of stones and crystals as you wear them. I also use different backgrounds in my photos so that you can see some of the color variance. Enjoy!
