What's Bruneau Jasper? Bruneau Jasper, a beautiful semi precious gemstone that comes from the region near the Bruneau River in western Idaho, about 30 miles south of the tiny town of Bruneau. Bruneau Jasper is sometimes referred to as a porcelain jasper because the semi precious gemstone cabochons have such a nice porcelain-like finish.

GD310- "Rare" Black Bruneau Jasper Fine Silver Necklace
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.
