Gray and Black Zebra Jasper Necklace with Unique Sterling Silver Ring (BLK-009)
Miriam surrounded a unique Hammered Sterling Silver Pendant with Striking Gray Zebra Jaspers to create this unique necklace. Smaller Gray Zebra and Silver Smoke Jasper beads, and square sterling silver accents add a stylish touch to this lovely piece. The textured sterling silver clasp accents the design. Miriam placed Silver Smoke Jasper beads into the center of the pendant. Zebra Jaspers are opaque stones with natural dark, grainy and jagged stripes of black or brown on backgrounds of white, gray, or tan. Some of the stones Miriam chose have a subtle splash of sandy beige twisting through the grey background, which provides a rich texture to the beads. Each reversible stone is a stunning work of art created by nature, and carefully placed by Miriam to create a striking and wearable art treasure.
Full length of the necklace is 20.5 inches, including the sterling silver clasp.
The oblong pillow shaped Zebra Jaspers are 1.5 inches long, 0.625 inches wide, and 0.25 inches thick.
The sterling silver pendant is 1.125 inches round.
The necklace is strung on a flexible but strong, stainless steel, nylon-coated beading wire.
Can you tell the difference between Zebra and Picasso Jaspers? They are very similar, and often confused. The difference is that the Black Streaks on Picasso Jaspers tend to be very random, while the Zebra Stripes are a thicker and have a grainy appearance, and seem to wrap around the stones in a more circular pattern—just like they do on zebras!
