Do You See What I See?
Wire Wrapped Picture Jasper Cabochon

When I first found this picture jasper cabochon, I saw a beautiful desert sunset loaded with gorgeous earthy colors: orange, copper, gold, chocolate brown, and rust! My second thought was with all these wonderful fall like colors, it must be paired with copper wire! So with lots of ideas already in mind I purchased this cab and went home to start creating this OOAK necklace!

The 40mm round picture jasper cabochon is unique not just because of its beautiful "scene" but also for its shape! The top is flat and is polished to a high glossy finish which shows off all the beautiful earthy tones, and the sides of the stone are finished in a "v" shape instead of the more common rounded off edge! This unique shape made it perfect for enclosing it in a netting of fine copper wire done in the Eni Oken style!

The pendant is 1-5/8 inches wide; and including the bale, it is 2-3/8 of an inch in length. It is suspended on an 18-inch long double leather cord in chocolate brown all with handmade copper findings! The Desert Sunset necklace is a one of a kind necklace, and it will be the perfect complement for your fall wardrobe!

Thank you for looking!
