Polychrome Jasper Pendant
This is a gorgeous Polychrome Jasper, also known as Desert Jasper, with great muted greens and caramels. It's a natural desert scene with a hint of sky at the side. I made it into a statement-sized sterling pendant to hang around your neck and gaze at forever. It'll be fun to adapt to your personal wardrobe. Or give it to someone as a really unique gift!
SETTING: I gave the stone a fine silver and sterling bezel setting. I sawed out a window on the back of the setting to show the equally beautiful back of the stone. I made a sterling hinge V-bail at the top which the sterling rolo chain feeds through. The chain closes with a solid lobster clasp.
SIZE: The stone measures 64mm x 40mm (2 1/2" x 1 1/2") and the bail adds another 8mm (5/16") to the top. The chain is 45.6cm (18") long.
FINISH: I oxidized the silver for a soft grey patina that nicely sets off the stone.
