The mottled appearance of the ocean jasper reminded me of cool loamy soil in mountainous areas where lichen and moss dot the ground and trees. Jasper is a kind of microcrystalline quartz (a tectosilicate in which Sally connects at all corners), with crystal structures invisible to the naked eye leading to a translucent or most often opaque coloring. Ocean jasper is characterized by needle-like crystals forming in spherical shapes, leading to a fossil-like appearance in some stones. This set contains a 17" necklace with a sterling silver toggle clasp and a 7" bracelet with a sterling silver lobster clasp. The rich, earthy colors and interesting patterns make this a good gift idea for a nature lover or anyone who loves bold colorful stones.

Length: necklace - 17", 7" bracelet

Materials:

  • ocean jasper beads
  • Czech glass beads
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver toggle clasp and lobster clasp
  • Soft Flex moderate duty nylon coated stainless steel cord (30 lb. load test)

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be kinked or broken through hard jerks or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or kinking cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The beading cord is strong and should be robust to toddler tugs and pulls. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 17" necklace and 7" bracelet can be worn separately or together for a cohesive look. For the stones to lie flat, a top with a curving neckline below the collar bone works best, though a scoop neck or moderate V-neck would also work well. The larger stones in the bracelet mean that it will comfortably fit a 6"-6.5" wrist although it is 7" in length.
