This handmade, metalwork, art pendant is made with a rare and super orby Ocean Jasper. It has white orbs floating in a sea of palest pink and clear. It is truly stunning and invites a closer look.
I have a thing for triangular cut stones. For this one, I added a handmade frame of fused Argentium Sterling silver with little triangles at the corners. I then added a couple of sterling beads at the bail to give it an even bigger and brighter silver look to it- it complements the stone so well.
Ocean jasper is a rare stone. I have said it before and I'll say it again, Ocean Jasper is one of my favorite stones and the good ones, like this, are getting real hard to get.
The pendant has the tiniest, high quality Japanese delica beads around the border of the palest peach to compliment the pink in the stone. This was created in one of my signature styles with all Argentium tarnish resistant sterling silver except for the 2 sterling silver beads at the bail.
This original, artisan designed and crafted pendant represents a new level in wire wrapping which distinguishes itself from the more common. I incorporated fusing / soldering and forging (hammering) with the wire wrapping to create something new and interesting, as well as beautiful.

More about Ocean Jasper:
Ocean jasper is a rare, collectable and popular stone from the north-east coast of Madagascar near the village of Morovato. Before the supply was depleted, it was found off the coast at low tide. It was always in limited supply due to the difficulty in collecting it. Ocean jasper is a type of jasper called orbicular jasper because of the orb patterns found in it. It is alternatively called an agate, as well. It has remained so popular because of the incredible colors and sometimes surreal picture scapes created by the orbs. No stone is quite like it. Ocean jasper is one of my personal favorite stones. I am constantly on the lookout to bring you the quickly disappearing higher qualities of this unique stone.
Ocean jasper is said to:
increase expressions of love
focus the positive aspects of life
stimulate the solar plexus, heart and throat chakras
bring relaxation and cooperation
