I just Love faceted stones, especially Briolette, and I just happened to have some that I purchased many years ago in Hawaii! These Picture Jasper Briolettes show the beautiful variety of colors this stone offers. I used 10mm Natural Picture Jasper Tube Beads, spaced with 2mm Swarovski Crystal AB beads. Next I added the 3-Picture Jasper Triangle Faceted Briolettes, spaced out by Picture Jasper teardrops & 4mm Swarovski Crystal AB beads. To finish the necklace, I used 2-3mm Swarovski Crystal AB beads, a silver plated clip clasp, and an aluminum jump ring.
The necklace is made 16" long, in the Choker style. I did add a 2", sterling silver extension chain, giving you the ability to wear it a little longer. I finished the chain off with a drop, consisting of a 10mm Picture Jasper Tube Bead, and 2-3mm Swarovski crystal bead.
This Necklace is an Original Design, and is Hand Crafted by me, in Londonderry, NH.
Length: 16" + 2" extension chain.
