My rural area continues to experience postal delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I am practicing "safer at home" measures and will be shipping items once per week.

Zebra "Jasper" Earrings in Oxidized Sterling Silver, Tribal Design Stone Beaded Earrings with Banded Serpentine Natural Stones



A pair of simple stone teardrop earrings that feature zebra "jasper" (a type of banded serpentine) stones with a high-contrast striped pattern, like their namesake. The zebra patterned stones are a very dark greenish black color with creamy white stripes that have a sheen - or chatoyancy - like tiger eye. Like tigereye and hawkseye, the sheen in this stone is from the light play off parallel fibrous strands of minerals. In the case of this green zebra jasper, wavy curly fibers of chrysotile embedded within the serpentine stone are responsible for the shiny chatoyant stripes.

In these earrings, the stones are subtly striped. I accented them with black stone and fine silver beads (keeping the high contrast black-and-white color scheme) in a tribal design beaded dangle. The aged sterling silver setting includes a primitive wire work detail of a shield or angular spiral on the face of the stones.
