AJE Earring Challenge-Reveal #12

These beautiful Lampwork Beads and Earrings are made by Jennifer of Dry Gulch Beads and Jewelry.  The glass is from Striking Color Glass.  They pair so well with the copper and just a touch of patina.

I made these Sterling Silver Earrings with some Lampwork Beads that Jennifer made for me a while back.  The Swarovski Crystals just set them off!  My Grand-daughter, Cat, took all the pictures this morning among the growing and climbing Crypress Vines.  Looks like summer!!!

Jasper is an impressive gemstone that looks beautiful when used in jewelry.  The appeal of Jasper is in its many interesting colors, patterns, and formations, making each piece unique.  Jasper frequently has a discriptive name from the area in which it is found, such as ocean and rainforest.  Also named for it's color appearance.  Jasper is also thought to promote relaxation and a sense of wholeness. :)  Check out our Jasper selection here on our Dry Gulch Beads and Jewelry Website.
