Fluted Leopardskin Jasper Gemstone Necklace, Pink Shell Handmade Artisan Unique Jewelry
Wildly elegant with just enough fun, boho appeal, the WALK ON THE WILD SIDE handmade necklace is a beauty to wear time and time again. The one of a kind necklace features eleven amazing leopardskin jasper (sometimes called jaguar jasper) gemstones. The background color of the gemstone is usually a light color, most often beige, light peachy pink or pale green or gray. As you can see in the photos, the gemstone gets its well-deserved name due to its natural darker leopard-like spots and banding throughout the stones. What makes the jasper used in this necklace so unique is that the shape is oval but fluting has been carved into the stones - something you don’t often see. The fluting adds eye catching texture to the overall design. Since each leopardskin jasper bead was hand shaped, they each have their own personality and are not exactly the same. Shiny lead free pewter bead caps in a daisy petal design cap each leopardskin jasper fluted oval perfectly and add a silvery glow.
Pale peach pink shell heishe was placed between each gemstone, highlighting the color of the leopardskin jasper. Each piece is square or rectangular shaped but are of slightly different sizes and thicknesses, adding even more wonderful texture to the necklace. The back of the necklace is finished with the pink shell and a sterling silver hook clasp set with a dot design. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog designs, the WALK ON THE WILD SIDE necklace was created for the woman who loves unique, wildlife inspired artisan jewelry.
