This Aqua Terra jasper (also known Impression jasper) and Czech glass necklace is an attention grabber! The graduated stones start in the center at 20mm, then go to 16mm, then 10mm, then 6mm. In between the gemstones I have placed 4mm Czech round crystal half golden copper beads. They compliment the jasper very nicely and add a pleasing effect when the light catches them. Then to add a bit more flair, I have place pewter star-shaped bead caps on the nine larger beads in the front.
The necklace is strung on the highest quality 49 strand Beadalon, which is made up of 49 smaller wires stranded together and nylon-coated. It is very flexible, strong and drapes well. There are two sterling silver crimps on each end of the necklace to ensure that it holds well and it closes with an excellent quality TierraCast (made in the USA) fine silver-plated pewter toggle clasp.
