This striped jasper in shades of brown are matched with bronze metal clay that has been textured with a similar pattern as the stone. The handcrafted pendant hangs from a simple chain and is a great piece to have on hand for those sweater and jeans days. Bronze, like most metals, will eventually tarnish and naturally darken. Renaissance Wax has been applied as a type of sealant to slow the process. I also include anti-tarnish tabs and an anti-tarnish bag for storage which I recommend using when not wearing the pendant. This will be shipped in a gift box for ease of giving and safe shipping.
