Autumn jasper is a subtle gemstone just waiting for someone like Reta to notice its potential. These large nuggets with tiny muted red and green specks added the weight that she prefers for necklaces. When cleverly mixed with other jewelry components, the gemstone then takes centre stage.

Reta loves earth tone colours so she teamed the autumn jasper with large and small brown wooden beads. She even added glass cathedral beads and tiny bronze beads all to great effect. Earrings to match were naturally a must after designing designing her necklace!
