Paintbrush Jasper Necklace, Wood Magnesite Landscape Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Intricate lines, artsy splashes and splatters - looking as if they were painted by a human hand -  caused some indigenous people to believe paintbrush jasper is Mother Earth speaking to her children, if we could just read what she painted.  The one of a kind ADVENTURE CALLS handmade necklace features an exquisite paintbrush jasper gemstone pendant.  To perfectly complement the pendant, unique hand carved wood beads and natural magnesite gemstones were used.  The paintbrush jasper (also called landscape jasper, picture, dendritic jasper and artistic jasper) pendant is absolutely magnificent with well defined “brush strokes” that fan out like watercolors across paper.  The pendant has a light two-toned beige background with intriguing darker brick red “landscapes” and tiny black dendritic dots.  There is a design on both sides of the pendant, making it hard to decide which should be the front.  A copper spiral was hand formed and hammered to cover the drilled bead hole and to start the rustically wire wrapped copper bail.  Mother Earth is definitely telling a story with this pendant.
 
Hand carved wood beads and natural magnesite highlight the pendant, bringing out its designs and colors.  The dark brown wood tubes, three on each side of the necklace, were hand carved so all just a bit different.  As you can see in the photos, the tubes are carved in three sections.  The two outer sections have a leaf and dot design, the inner with what looks like a paisley and dot design.  Copper flower spacers were used one each end of the wood tubes to add a wonderful coppery glow.  The rest of the necklace is made up of natural magnesite gemstone rondelles in a creamy of-whiytte color with brown matrix.  A magnesite rondelle was placed between each wood tube with a copper bicone on each side for beautiful drape.  Groups of three rondelles make up the back of the necklace, each group separated by a single copper bicone.  A twisted copper toggle clasp with an arrowhead shape finishes the necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the ADVENTURE CALLS necklace is a perfect gift for the woman who adores wearing one of a kind artisan gemstone jewelry . . . with a story from Mother Earth!

Paintbrush jasper is believed to connect us with the earth, encouraging ecological awareness; it also absorbs negativity and promotes harmony.  Wood is a symbol of stability, strength and being firmly grounded.  Magnesite is said to help turn dreams into realities; it is believed to instill peace during meditation.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.   

 

The ADVENTURE CALLS 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.
