Paintbrush Jasper Necklace, Agate Garnet Gemstone Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

Extremely well named for its natural beauty, the one of a kind NATURE’S ART handmade necklace features a stone pendant that looks as if it is a painting of trees reflecting onto a lake.  But the pendant is actually a natural gemstone!  Perfect for the woman who adores unique gemstone jewelry, the necklace features a nature’s paintbrush jasper pendant (also called landscape jasper), silver lace agate rounds, garnet and sterling silver.  Jasper, one of the oldest gemstones on earth, is a fine grained variety of quartz with mineral impurities that layered over billions of years to often form impressionist “pictures.” And what a picture the pendant makes!  As you can see, the highly polished pendant has a somewhat mottled pale gray background.  A line of brown runs sideways, looking like a shoreline on a lake.  The trees that are growing on the shoreline are mirrored in the water along with the gray sky.  Tree branches run along the left side of the pendant.  Even the unpolished back side of the pendant has a similar scene (see photo # 9). The pendant is set in a silver over pewter mount with a silver bail.
To enhance the pendant beautifully, earthy silver lace agate rounds and red garnet were used.  Agates generally were formed in nodules of volcanic rock under huge pressure and  heat.  Like the jasper, mineral impurities from the colors and swirling designs.  The silver lace agate is mostly shades of dark to light gray but also sports bits of peach, browns white and pale yellow.  As you can see in the photos, each agate gemstone is unique.  Separating each silver lace agate round from its neighbor is a rich dark ruby red garnet round.  Small sterling silver beads on each side adds glow and highlights the garnet.  A textured, sterling silver hook clasp securely fastens the necklace when worn.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the NATURE’S ART handmade necklace is a wonderful gift for the woman who loves natural gemstones and loves wearing one of a kind artisan jewelry.

Nature’s paintbrush jasper is said to be a very nurturing stone, a healer of the spirit and a stone of courage and wisdom.  Silver lace agate is believed to be a balancing and protective stone, said to be able to ward off the "evil eye." Red garnet has long been known for its connections to creativity and love.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

The NATURE’S ART 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!
