Snake Dance - turquoise and jasper necklace

The snake danced in the
Opposite direction when
It saw the jasper.


Just finished this new turquoise necklace yesterday.

Jasper is said to protect the wearing from snakes and spiders... a good gemstone to wear in the desert! This chunky necklace was created with 12-22mm turquoise nuggets and 6mm round red jasper beads. A hook and eye clasp secures it in the back. I made some earrings with the same materials, but decided not to sell them as a set. The necklace is available at Etsy and 1000Markets

Length: 23" long
Weight: 3.1 oz.

Good to know about Jasper. It is rattlesnake season here, and there have been so many lately at the ranch where I keep my horse. Perhaps I will make something I can attach to her halter to protect her.

Beautiful! And keeping spiders and snakes away is a huge bonus!
