Brown Zebra Jasper Pearls Chunky Necklace, Handmade Gemstone Copper Statement Jewelry for Women

Item Description

A piece of jewelry that is sure to make a statement each and every time it is worn, the chunky CREME DE CACAO handmade gemstone necklace is a true beauty.  The elegantly earthy necklace features striped brown zebra jasper, glowing brown disc pearls and copper.  Zebra jasper, just like its name suggests, usually is black and white.  Much more rarely does the gemstone come in brown and a few other colors.  The coloration of the jasper used in the necklace is absolutely luscious and ranges from a very light tan to a deep dark chocolate brown.  Some pieces have a pinkish hue.  As you can see in the photos, each piece has its own striped personality.  And to make the one of a kind necklace even more eye catching, the jasper is cut in a unique 12-sided shape, called a dodecahedron.  The faces look like large facets and definitely catch and reflect light when worn.


To add subtle beauty and to complement the brown zebra jasper perfectly, lovely dark brown  pearl discs were added between each stone (except for the last two).  Disc pearls are not something that are not seen very often.  Since these are freshwater pearls, they have a rustic look to them, not being perfectly smooth.  But do they ever have a lustrous look to them!  They mainly have a copper glow, but some brick red and medium green shows up depending on how the light hits.  To separate the disc pearls from the brown zebra jasper, 4 mm copper beads were added for even more glow and to make sure the necklace has great sinuosity.  The necklace is finished with double crimps for extra security and a flowing copper hook set clasps the necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the CREME DE CACAO gemstone necklace was created for the woman who loves artisan jewelry made with unique gemstones.

Brown Zebra Jasper is a stone of calmness; it is a grounding stone, allowing you to tune into Mother Earth and find joy in your surroundings.  Pearls are used to spread loving vibrations; they promote sincerity, truth and loyalty.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.

The CREME DE CACAO artisan necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
