I absolutely adore Red Creek Jasper!!!!!
It is simply one of the most varied stone you can buy. I am amazed at all the various colorations and variegations it comes in. It simply looks like a painting.
Sometimes I am a little confused about what this stone is actually called. I have seen it called Red Creek, Cherry Creek and Succor Creek Jasper. Maybe they are different Jaspers but they do have some similarities in the vibrancy in their coloration.
Here is a post by Jewelry Making Daily on Red Creek Jasper.
I most like to use this stone as a pendant. I think the variety of stones, wood, lampwork, glass, ceramic and art beads you can use with this stone is endless.
I love to find interesting shapes in pendants as I think this can really make a distinctive piece of jewelry. I do sell some of these rectangle shaped pendants in my shop. See the link below.
If you haven't used Red Creek Jasper in your Jewelry Designs yet........I am sure when you do you will find that you have a new favorite stone to work with.
