This graceful Necklace features a Biggs Jasper and Sterling Silver Pendant by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. Biggs Jasper, one of the premier Picture Jaspers, was discovered a few decades ago during construction of a road near Biggs, OR. Biggs is known for its mountain scenes and is one of the most sought after Jaspers. This large Stone – about 2-1/2 inches by 1-1/4 inches – has a gradation of dark brown, chocolate and tan tones creating a pattern reminiscent of a mountainous landscape. The Jasper is wrapped in a Sterling Silver Bezel and mounted on a Sterling Plate that has been intricately hand-cut and notched. The Pendant hangs from a polished custom Sterling Bail, and the back of the piece is stamped with the artist’s hallmark and “Sterling.” We’ve paired the Biggs Jasper Pendant with three strands of glossy dark brown Pen Shell Heishi, blended with Czech Glass and Cubes of Rutilated Quartz. The Czech Glass includes 11 x 17mm Rectangles matched to the Pendant Stone, as well as 8mm Red-Bronze Faceted Rounds. The Stones are highlighted by 6 x 16mm ornate Sterling Silver Cylinders, 6mm Sterling Rounds, and 5mm Dotted Spacers, adding sparkle and design interest. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Cones and Toggle Clasp and a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 140 grams and is 23-1/2 inches long, plus the Pendant. The Pendant is 3-1/4” tall by 1-1/2” wide including the 1/2” Bail.
