These necklaces are sold separately. Use the drop down menu to select a single strand or pair. Strand A has smaller beads and simpler lines. Strand B features a chunky jasper focal bead with mineral inclusions and swirled texture.
The stones include brecciated red jasper with hematite inclusions, poppy jasper, faceted smokey quartz, and garnet. Note that the large center stone on strand B is heavily textured with a very raw rustic, organic look. If you like a perfectly imperfect, wabi sabi look, this is your rock; if you require smooth perfection, this is not the stone for you.
