Each month my Esty Blogging team does a challenge, and this month the theme is to look to nature for inspiration and Fall colors. Well that's easy enough, so what took me until the end of the month?!
I decided to create a simple choker using a gorgeous jasper focal, some copper detail, leather and a little black to draw out the veining in the stone.
I love japser; it is one of my favorite stones. Of any of the stones I have built up in my stash, jasper is absolutely top 5. I never get tired of it as there are so many varieties to choose from. Half the fun is trying to figure out exactly which one it is. I thought this one was red poppy jasper, but my friend Therese is guessing leopard skin jasper. Let us know if you have a better guess!
