About the Item

This striking necklace features multi-colored moukaite jasper nuggets and pendant that has been hand-wrapped in reclaimed sterling silver wire. It is finished with a shining Bali silver toggle clasp.

Moukaite Jasper is named after the place it was found -- Mouka station on the west side of the Kennedy mountain range in western Australia. It is commonly found in opaque, earthy tones of brick red, golden yellow, and shades in between. Mookaite Jasper contains tiny fossilized remains of organisms called radiolaria.

Bali silver is handcrafted by talented silversmiths throughout the the island of Bali, a small island in the Indonesian archipelago, which is renowned for its artistic and cultural heritage.

For centuries, Balinese artists have perfected their skills. Communities specialize in specific artistic traditions that are passed down from generation to generation. As a result, these silversmiths display superb technique and immense patience. Each bead is carefully made with exquisite detail. Every silver dot is individually placed, every surface patterned by hand. Each bead is a work of art, and no two are exactly alike.
