Jasper Intrigue Blog Hop and Challenge

This is going to be a great hop! As most of my bead group members know, jasper is my FAVORITE gemstone!  So many types of jasper, and all are beautiful. 

The talented participants received kits with different types of jasper. They were asked to create jewelry or other art using as many beads from the kit as possible.  The majority of these beautiful beads were from ZnetShows.  Check out their  selections: ZnetShows Jasper Gemstones, ZnetShows Tiaria Crystal  and ZnetShows Plated Metal

Here is my Ocean Jasper Bracelet.  Right up my alley - simple and classic. I keeping this one for me.The patterns in the jasper are very pretty.

I also created a necklace with some different jasper:
