It’s really quite fascinating to delve into the origins of the beads we use in our jewelry. It makes me much more appreciative of these beautiful objects and thankful we have such easy access today!
Jasper is a semi-precious gemstone that is available in a wide variety of colors and designs. In today’s video I show you several different types and explain a bit about this natural material.
If you’re interested in learning more Barlow’s Gems website has many gorgeous and intriguing stone beads and cabochons and they do a great job explaining where each comes from. I especially like the story about Deschutes Jasper.
