You know, it's a wicked tornado out there these days. Nothing makes me sadder than watching the world tear itself to pieces. When I feel like I'm drifting off into the miasma of chaos, I shut everything down, even if I have a million things to do, and I go outside and walk around barefoot beneath the trees or I ride a horse or I let my hair down in the wind and walk for a while...I get myself grounded and rooted down tightly into real reality and what is good and natural and abundant and plain and true. I come back to Earth and so, I come back into myself.
One of the reasons I love to work with jasper is it seems to offer that same solid presence as having the earth beneath my feet and the sun on my face. This is a gem that is simple and true. Let jasper anchor you.
This necklace is composed of a lovely cut of Imperial Jasper in woodsy hues -- imagine a grove of Douglas fir in the last of the sunset, those colors are in this stone. I've set it in textural sterling silver and jeweler's brass.
These are necklaces that offer a bit of shelter from the storm -- go out into it if and when you must, but keep your feet planted on firm ground and your head screwed on straight.
Length: About 20 inches with my heavy s-clasp.
