No. 8 Remade: Black Water Jasper Necklace

I loved the weight, coolness and smooth feel of this necklace as soon as I touched it. But somehow visually it didn’t appeal.
Which I thought odd. I liked the individual stones, just not the necklace. I set out to find out the name of the stones and searched lots of different sites. I was getting quite frustrated when it occurred to me to make an appeal for help on twitter :
(if you are on Twitter, I recommend following Yvonne, I’ve found her bead tips very helpful – Many Thanks Yvonne! )
The lines of the Black Water Jasper made me think of the waves in the Blue Sardonyx that I had fallen in love with (and purchased ) at The Beaderie.
So here you have it:
The addition of the 12 mm faceted Blue Sardonyx rounds and the 3 mm sterling silver beads complimented each piece of Black Water Jasper. I’ve abandoned the chord and strung the necklace on 7 strand Beadalon Stringing Wire with a sterling silver clasp to give it a more polished finish.
Now this appeals! ♥K
