A fantastic cabochon of Sonoran Dendritic Rhyolite jasper.
It features bold "branches" typical of dendritic volcanic pieces from Mexico.
This spectacular cabochon is 3 3/4 in high including the beaded bail and is 2 3/8 in wide.
The rope is 17 in long beaded in twisted ndebele stitch in shades of cranberry, mauve, plum and silver to compliment the colors of the stone.
The piece is backed with soft grey suede and closes with a ss hook and eye toggle.
This rather large pendant is sure to be a conversation starter no matter where you wear it and if you love the desert and desert colors you will want this one for sure.
I have always been attracted to all things natural and earthy. As a bead artist living here in the southwest desert I am surrounded by wonderful lapidary folks giving me access to unusual cuts of jasper and agates that lend themselves to the unique "one of a kind' beaded jewelry I design. Working with natural stones and seed beads which I embroider onto leather or suede using my own original designs with native stitches and techniques I sew or loom each piece individually.Website: www.gaudybyneola.com
