This delicate necklace of deep green and rust brown features a set-in-sterling cabochon of India Bloodstone, also known as heliotrope. Classic Bloodstone is a variety of green jasper with red inclusions of hematite, which resemble spots of blood--hence the name bloodstone. Most sources of Bloodstone are from Indonesia, but it is also found in Armenia, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Australia, and the United States. I chose to back this stone with 24 gauge sterling silver sheet, and surrounded by a scalloped edge sterling silver bezel. I then added a decorative silver ornament over the corner in the shape of a cupped sphere raised up on a sterling curved band. The hanger is an elaborate coil of half round sterling, large enough for Sarah to run the beads through. There are numerous sterling silver spacer beads of varying thicknesses, and larger melon shaped sterling accent beads. The beads in the strand bring out the deep green and rusty reds of the Bloodstone centerpiece. These include more of the Bloodstone, Moukaite, green Goldstone, red Tiger's eye, cultured pearls, and Czech glass. The hook and loop clasp is also sterling silver. The length of this necklace is 20 1/2 inches, and the pendant is 1 1/2 inches long by 7/8 inch wide. This is a very regal piece, and will stand out on a variety of colors of clothing.
