Picture jasper is a petrified mud that dripped into gas pockets in molten lava. It became superheated and then solidified forming the unusual banded patterns which are typical of this stone. (Thanks for that info, Bernadine Fine Art Jewelry!) It mostly comes from Idaho and Oregon.
This type of jasper is a perfect neutral stone with its tan, brown, and creamy colors. I created this coordinating set as a custom order for a friend. Picture jasper is combined with antiqued copper in this earthy creation.
A friend of mine is due to have a baby girl in about a month from now. Her family blessed her with a shower this past weekend. I enjoyed looking at all of the sweet baby girl dresses and outfits and headbands...there is not much pink in my house! I often give jewelry as gifts to my friends, and so it occurred to me that this would be a perfect gift for a mother and her wee little daughter!
Aqua Mommy & Me bracelet set
The bracelets share coordinating beads and antique brass metal findings. The tiny bracelet is intended for a toddler who is well supervised and has moved past the stage of putting things in her mouth! However it is made with safety in mind, including a wrapped loop for the dangle, twisted crimp tubes, and a closed jump ring for the clasp.
This is the first mom and daughter coordinating set I have made, but I think I will be making more!
