Green Jasper and Black Onyx Art Nouveau Peekaboo Carved Brass Necklace
The Green Jasper and Black Onyx Art Nouveau Peekaboo Carved Brass Necklace is a one of a kind. The stone was prospected and cut by my friend, Christine, of The Submissive Stone. She found this Jasper in the Teanaway Mountains in Central Washington at First Creek. This is the place where she and her awesome husband Dana took me rock hunting for my first PNW dig. The stone reminds me of the Pacific Ocean waves crashing onto the rocky coastline.
The Green Jasper is 39 carats and is set in a brass bezel. The stone is 28mm in diameter and is 5mm thick. The pendant is made of thick 18 gauge red brass and is 35mm tall by 38mm wide. A decorative art nouveau pattern mimicking a sun rising over the Teanaway Mountains reveals peeks of the stone through the back side. There are five 3mm Black Onyx cabochon accents set in copper and some art nouveau style stamps decorating the metal. This piece is sculpted on all sides and is a little work of art. It’s hung on 16 inches of brushed gold nickel free electroplated art nouveau chain with lobster clasp and closure.
