Today I want to share a natural stone that is fairly new to the market. While it may be sold under other names, I have learned it is called Red Creek Jasper and it is being mined in China. This jasper features a stunning variety of rich colors, including brick red, sage green, yellow ochre, beige, tan, and brown, with fabulous multi-directional veining. Each bead is wonderfully unique!

The colors of Red Creek Jasper lend it well to my autumn leaves jewelry. But it also reminds me of a desert with vibrant red rocky hills and scattered sage brush, which has inspired me to use it with my southwest tribal-inspired Wild Pony horse designs.
