Picasso Jasper Rondelle Earrings

Picasso jasper gets its name from the markings on the stone which look like brushstrokes. It is actually metamorphic limestone, is very easy to cut and shapes beautifully into jewelry. These stones range in shades of mahogany to camel with the characteristic "paintbrush" markings. I've added sterling bead caps, daisy spacers, tiny sterling balls and Bali earwires to complete the design. They match this necklace.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The earrings measure 1 3/4 inches.

Note: Jasper was a favorite gem in ancient times and is referenced in Hebrew, Assyrian and Latin literature. It is a massive, fine-grained chalcedony and comes in all colors. Much of the carisite jasper comes from southern Oregon. The name jasper comes from the Greek and means "spotted stone." In brecciated jasper the rich colors are swirled through the stone. Jasper is believed to protect against sight defects and drought. It is both stabilizing and healing.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
