This necklace started when I saw some beads in the store that said "Buy me." The "buy me" beads were the flat green stone pillows, that the label claimed are "Australian Jasper, dyed". So, they are real stones, but are dyed colors that appeals to me.
To complete the necklace, I purchased a strand of small round Australian Jasper beads, and added some copper round beads.
I love how this necklace goes with so many of my colorful T shirts, which I wear to work. (I work in a basement with computer nerds, and just about everyone wears casual attire.) The necklace goes with teal, aqua, various greens, and blue.
