Succor Creek Jasper

Orange and Grey Succor Creek Jasper Pendant with Handwrapped Sterling Silver Wire Beaded Necklace
I designed this necklace to feature this magnificent 40mm x 40mm orange and grey Succor Creek Jasper teardrop shaped pendant.

I love the colors in this pendant and I chose oxblood coral beads to create a necklace to compliment the shades in the pendant. I added light grey and dark grey Swarovski pearls as well as Indian red Swarovski crystals to complete the wire wrapped  beaded necklace.

To see more views of this necklace or to purchase this necklace please take this link to my Etsy shop BeadedEmbellishments

Please, browse around my shop while you're there and come back. I'd love you to tell me what you think of my shop.
