Pits and Palms

Palm Jasper Earrings

Rugged looking palm jasper marquis shaped stones with their pitted surface in earthy tan and charcoal gray tones have that ancient appearance that I adore.

I thought it would be an interesting blend of textures to combine the pitted jasper stones with primitive ceramic drops from Jana Bližňáková of Happy Fish Things. Add to that, some copper wire wrapping and waxed cotton cord with seed beads in black and turquoise that pick up the colors in the artisan ceramic drops.
