I am particularly excited to introduce the new jasper pendant to the Cascades Destination because it has been a long time in development.

I wanted to create a pendant that had the uniqueness of the moss agate pendant but had almost a scene inside of it. I first thought of “landscape agate” and tried to find the right pieces that exhibited the vision I saw in my mind. I sent pictures of what I was envisioning.

I played with the colors that would go with the stone, I thought of the vibrancy of fire opal and how it dramatic it would be. Though when a sample arrived, the color was so transparent that the beautiful scene within the gemstone was lost when worn (when light couldn’t pass through it).

Back to the drawing board. What gemstone could we use that would show off the unique lines in the stone? While in Bangkok in February, we looked at a selection of gemstones to see what options there were.

Potential gemstone options

After picking the right patterning, it was easier to play with the shape of the pendant and the accent gemstones. With the color we selected, the earthy colors of smoky quartz felt right.

 

I am so happy with the final product and how individually beautiful each one is (the pattern on each pendant is different). After over a year in development, the necklace can finally fulfill its destiny and be worn and enjoyed!
