Stones: Dalmatian Jasper

Wrapping up my week of stones with one last Jasper. Yes, I have more, but I figure you guys have all seen enough of my stones for one week. 

So we end the week with Dalmatian Jasper; a stone name for a dog. A noble cause. In my opinion, dogs are the best.

Ok, so on to the earrings. We've got one more jasper stone mined in Chihuahua, Mexico. It is fun and festive, at least I think so. I did 2 versions, one with polished onyx, one with matte. A little silver to give it some sparkle. Certainly worthy of a night out on the town.

I'd seen this type of jasper before but never knew what it was called; what a wildly appropriate name! One of these days I'm going to treat myself to a pair of your gorgeous earrings; mayhap something to go with my beautiful necklace!

These remind me of our first dog - a Dalmation!
I can imagine these would look great with a classic black/white outfit :)

Dalmation jasper is fantastic. Its name could not be more perfect! Your pairs came out beautifully.

This pair is so cool....Dalmation Jasper is so distinctive. I attended a bead show yesterday and happened to pick up a number of matched pairs of stone pendants for earrings too.... I rarely make earrings and was recently asked to do so. I'm looking forward to finding some time to do so! Thank you for sharing your expertise, Cynthia.
