The clasp is also handwrought and textured., Miriam used Old World Bronze™, which is handwrought using an old world wax method, and an exclusive bronze recipe developed by the Charveaux family of metalsmiths in Scottsdale, Arizona. As it ages, bronze develops a beautiful patina that enhances the individual character of each piece.

Silver Leaf, Silver Mist, Silver Smoke, and Silver Leaf Jaspers all show a subtle elegance of neutral shades that are versatile—and look enough alike to confuse even “stone aficionados.”These lovely stones are fashionable and stylish, and perfect for designing jewelry that is both bold and understated depending on the necklace design and accent beads! Silver Leaf Jasperis finely colored and patterned in shades of cream and black, and bits of brown – sometimes with hints of red. Its patterns tend to be in lines and bands. Silver Mist Jasperis found in subtle and lovely neutral colors with bands of gray, tan and cream. Some Silver Mist Jasper displays a soft green hue, with gray and tan-colored bands—some stones showing a bold and contrasting streak or splash of deep reddish brown. Silver Smoke Jaspershows wispy lines of light smoky gray against a darker gray to black background. Silver Mist Jaspercan also be confused with some Saturn Jasper stones, but the Saturn-type rings are generally deeper in color and more distinct than the patterns on Silver Mist Jasper. All these stone varieties are beautiful, no matter what gemologist call them—and it’s not unusual for designers to name stones by how they look in in comparison to similar stones and in the sunlight.
