The Travellers Necklace
I thought I’d start with my Travellers necklace. I go to a silversmithing class and Adele my teacher has an amazing stash of stones. I’d been coveting this picture jasper cabochon for a while but it is quite large and so was reasonably pricey. But as luck would have it, Adele got her stone stash out on my birthday and I naturally decided to treat myself. It is a lovely stone – like a Chinese painting - I see three people starting out on a trip through the mountains to a castle on a hill. What do you see? I didn’t want to distract from the stone so I kept the setting fairly simple, just with some added interest with the toggle at the front rather than the back.
