The Greek origin of the word jasper, iaspis, means "spotted stone." In this form of semiprecious chalcedony, or microcrystalline quartz, fancy jasper is an opaque creamy beige or gray stone with lavender, green, pink, orange or red swirls and specks creating a rich medley of color. It is said to facilitate tranquility and help eliminate worry and depression, and bring mental clarity.

Sterling silver is a white, highly reflective precious metal composed of 925 parts of pure silver and 75 parts alloy, usually copper. Copper provides the silver with sufficient hardness and wearing qualities, as pure silver is sometimes considered too soft to be used or worn everyday.

At times, we oxidize or "antique" our finished sterling pieces to blacken the recessed areas, and then rub the rest of the piece to a high white shine. Oxidizing can give a piece of jewelry wonderful depth and rustic feel.
