The varied and splendid shades of green in this artisan gemstone and wire necklace and earrings set remind me of the summer fields of sage, wildflowers, and grass and the open aspen and ponderosa forest near my home in South Park Colorado. This green stone jewelry set, "Summer in South Park" is a lavish celebration of highly polished India agates (fancy jasper) in a range of woodland green and grassland sage and brown tones and green aventurine gemstones wrapped with oxidized patina sterling silver wire. The 26 inch long handcrafted gemstone station chain features 29 gemstone beads each individually wire-wrapped into links. Six heavier gauge sterling silver links are spaced around the chain. In all, there is about 7 feet of sterling silver wire in the necklace.

The Fancy Jasper stones are of two styles: 5/8-inch by ½-inch ovals and 5/16-inch rounds. The colors vary from very dark forest evergreen to whitish sage green with moss green and mottled tan and green in between. Smaller round beads of green aventurine add translucence and brighter spots of bright herbal green to the design. The oval India agates display more golden tan to burnt sienna mottled with hints of brassy green.

This natural stone and silver station chain has an elegant feel with the highly polished gemstone beads and aged finish sterling silver in a secure and easy-to-wear style. While this necklace is full of stones, because the links are individually wire-wrapped, each stone has a little space of its own – room for you to appreciate it. The necklace has an airier feel than a beaded strand. The necklace has been assembled with sterling silver rings between the stone stations and the silver links. This gives the chain a nice drape and helps the larger oval stones to lie flat against the wearer.

The necklace is finished to 26-inches long; there is no clasp, just slip it over your head. Because there is no clasp, you might wonder where the front of the necklace is. I intended the center front of the necklace to be the three dark green round jasper beads with the center one having the swirly colors. The back of the necklace has four smaller round green aventurine beads at the center. I did this so that the necklace would be more comfortable without a large bead right at the center back, rather the links between beads curve more easily around the wearer’s neck. However, I suppose it could be worn either way for a bit of a change. It also won't matter if it creeps around, there's nothing you wouldn't want to show off with this necklace. The length is sufficient to wear over your wardrobe choice: t-shirt, turtleneck, under a collared shirt. A pair of sterling silver and fancy jasper earrings is included to wear with the necklace or on their own as a great neutral accessory. See photos.
