Red Bend Jasper Cream Riverstone Czech Beige Crystal Gemstone Necklace
Autumn inspired large red bend jasper free-form pendant is the focal in this handmade gemstone necklace. The necklace itself consists of red bend jasper rounds, cream colored riverstone and Czech beige Picasso luster fire-polished crystals which I have named "Rustic Autumn Embrace".
I was first inspired when I found this large free-form pendant with it's deep terracotta red with it's slashes of cream and gray matrix. The most unique feature that caught my eye is the quartz vein running throughout the middle. I have attached the pendant to the necklace with a gold-plated leaf pinch bail. Jasper is an opaque chalcedony and red is one of its most common colors. The red jasper stones are from South Africa have a terracotta red color that also contain a white to transparent quartz vein. Please view the close-up photos to see the beauty of these stones.
Red Jasper is still known as the Stone of Endurance, a gentle, but vital, stimulation of chi, or Life Force, bringing physical strength and energy, stamina, focus and determination. Its steady frequency calms the emotional body creating a lasting, stable energy for improving health or overcoming illness, setting goals and following through to completion, facing unpleasant tasks and having the courage to rectify wrongs. Red Jasper activates the Base chakra.
The cream riverstone stones are highly polished and smooth. Riverstone's energy accelerates change. It energizes your aura, speeding the resolution of any process you are experiencing. Riverstone helps you move more swiftly through the changes associated with a particular process, such as a therapy or cleansing. When used as an adjunct to meditation, Riverstone energizes your whole being and helps you make the changes that lead to deeper spiritual experiences. In between the riverstone I placed Czech beige Picasso luster fire-polished crystals to add just a hint of sparkle as the light reflects against the facets.
The necklace is finished off with gold-filled wire guards to protect the beading wire. The closure is a gold-plated DuroPlate lobster claw clasp by Via Murano. The necklace length itself is 18 inches, or 45.7 centimeters. For extra length I added a DuroPlated gold chain with a 2 inch, or 5 centimeter, extender. This will allow you to drape the necklace 18 to 20 inches. On the end of the extender I hand-wrapped a tiny dangle using one of the Czech fire-polished crystals. The pendant will add an additional 3 inch, or 7.6 centimeter, drop to the drape of your necklace.
As an added bonus I will include a matching pair of earrings on hypo-allergenic satin hamilton gold leverbacks. I have included a photo of the complimentary earrings.
Note: DuroPlate™ results in a plated surface that is significantly more durable than the industry standard used on most fashion jewelry components.
