To those outside arid zones, the idea of a rock garden might sound odd. What's a garden without greenery? To those of us in desert regions, rock accents and gardens are not only practical but fun in their own way. This virtual garden combines common silicates (jasper and aventurine) with beautiful and bountiful turquoise nuggets. The combination is uneven and knobby - just like most collections of natural rock! - and great fun to wear. This set of necklace and bracelet can be worn together as a necklace and bracelet or as a wrap-bracelet and bracelet, for the popular three-strand look, and it makes a great gift for a rock lover or someone with an anti-green thumb.

Length: necklace - 16 1/2", 7 1/2" bracelet


  • brecciated jasper beads
  • peach aventurine beads
  • red jasper beads
  • turquoise beads
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver 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 16.5" necklace and 7.5" bracelet can be worn separately or together for a cohesive look. The necklace can be worn with casual tops (crew necks, V-necks) and higher-neck blouses or deeper V collared shirts, or it can be worn as a double-wrap bracelet, turning to substantial 3-strand bracelet look when combined with the actual bracelet.
