Steppingstone Calm

in: Necklace



This is my signature Steppingstone design necklace that I created many years ago, after much trial and error in trying to use double-drilled stones. Our fantastic, local wholesale jewelry supplier Dakota Stones always has these in stock... surely there was some unique way to design them.  I was thrilled with the first rendition, which I'm still wearing, and have loved making them ever since.  This version has a very quiet, elegant palette, with really unique stones.  The double drill at the base of the "Y" are a combination of picture jasper and matte black Amazonite, with chocolate/silver glass melon beads in between.  Further along, there are gorgeous pebbles of labradorite with window faceted pale gold beads.  There are also matte picture jasper rounds, Czech glass bicone beads with black etching, and silver seed beads.  This hand-knotted beauty will go with just about anything!  It's 31" long, and has an easy silver plated rosebud toggle.  it takes many hours to know these lovelies, and the end result is worth the effort.  Completely one-of-a-kind.
