A beautiful Owyhee Mountain Jasper with soft rose red and lighter pink with hints of brown. The pinkish brown section of this stone has an interesting pattern that resembles a tree branch with birds flying. The cabochon is cut in a rounded square shape and is bezel set in fine silver and the entire piece of jewelry has been oxidized to showcase all the details. The pendant measures approx 1 5/8" x 1 6/8" long. The pendant hangs from an 25” long sterling silver chain.
What's Owyhee Mountain Jasper? This stone comes from the Owyhee Mountain area in Eastern Oregon. Owyhee Jasper is another one of the very popular semi precious gemstone picture jaspers used for designer cabochons, because it is known for its depictions of mountain or desert scenery.
What are lab created stones? The only difference between a lab created gemstone and a natural gemstone is that the natural gemstone most likely has flaws called inclusions, and lab created gemstones have no inclusions, as the mineral composition, heat, and pressure are controlled in the laboratory. Whether a gemstone is a natural stone or lab-created, the physical characteristics are the same.

Metal clay is a crafting medium consisting of very small particles of metal such as silver, gold, bronze, or copper mixed with an organic binder and water for use in making jewelry, beads and small sculptures. Originating in Japan in 1990, metal clay can be shaped just like any soft clay, by hand or using molds. After drying, the clay can be fired in a variety of ways such as in a kiln, with a handheld gas torch, or on a gas stove, depending on the type of clay and the metal in it. The binder burns away, leaving the pure sintered metal.
