This piece of Rainforest Jasper is like a picture! Framed in textured sterling silver. A patina was added to give emphasis to the applied texture.
It is thought that Ocean Jasper formed as a rhyolitic igneous rock, rich in silica. As the lava cooled, the silica precipitated out of the magma, forming little spherical balls. It is found on the coast of Madagascar.
Ocean Jasper are excellent healing stones that encourage a feeling of joy and elevated spirits! This is an excellent stone to help you if you need a lift. As they help you to release negative feelings, you feel more optimistic.
I get my stone materials and cut, shape and polish them myself. I procure the gold or silver metal flat or as rolled wire or tubes and use it to shape and create my designs.
Hand-crafted art/jewelry are one-of-a-kind pieces and generally are not duplicated exactly. Stones vary, measurements vary. I can collaborate with you if you would like to have a piece made for you or for someone else. Sterling silver may be polished with any number of good silver cleaner/polish products. Natural stones are fragile and may break if dropped, heated directly, stepped on, etc. Care should be taken.
