"Ancient" Jasper Pendant
The natural beauty of gemstones themselves often provides the inspiration for Tessoro designs. Fossilized coral and impression jasper, formed over millions of years, are dug from deep in the earth and brought into the light of day to shape the Ancient Collection. Each piece makes use of the natural variations in materials and are truly one-of-a-kind.
Materials include: natural birch bark, sterling silver, impression jasper
Black leather cord measures approximately 17"

About the artist:
Jewelry designer, Deborah Bushinski, designs Tessoro Jewelry to feature the natural beauty of birch bark. The bark used is salvaged from the northern Minnesota logging industry. The bark is then cut or torn and coated with an acrylic polymer to add to its durability. The copper is recycled from car radiators. Semi-precious stones, sterling beads, freshwater pearls, and turquoise nuggets are used sparingly to enhance the designs. In her studio in Minnetonka, Minnesota, Deb carefully chooses her materials and maintains the integrity and demanding level of fine craftsmanship you expect in each piece.
Hand-crafted in the U.S.A.
