Gifts for Her–Jasper and Handmade


Considered the stone of tenderness, jasper enhances relaxation, healing, integrity, peace and comfort to the wearer. It is filled with protective energy and is used for nurturing.

Jasper is said to increase clarity and mental balance, as well as grace and beauty.

Jasper is certainly beautiful with its wide palette of colors and patterns. This stone is one of my favorites; although, I could not tell you which variation is my favorite since they are all delightful in their uniqueness.

It is found around the world, and one of the things I didn't get to do while in Montana was pull some from the mountain streams.

Because of its amazing arrays of colors and patterns, this gemstone is easily paired with any color combination when designing jewelry.

Jasper is mentioned in the Bible as one of the breastplate stones used by the high priests and is the stone of the Benjamin tribe. It is even mentioned in the book of Revelation as a very precious jewel.

Native Americans consider it a rainmaker and is used today as a dowser.

Every jasper variation has its own metaphysical properties, so each should be considered if you are using them for healing or in chakra jewelry.

I just know that I love the colors and patterns, and that jasper makes a great accent bead in my jewelry.

  1. Jasper (along with agates) are favorite gemstones, because of, like you said, the extreme wide range of colors and patterns. Have always said I would love to design something with each type of jasper - would keep me going for quite a while! Many thanks for this excellent read and for all the wonderful handmade gifts you shared. And thanks for adding my dragon pendant necklace with elephant skin jasper into the mix! Several tasty treats to the Dirty Harry Pup from Howling at Sirens Way Too Early in the Morning Moose.

    A little shaken up this morning with a 5.7 magnitude earthquake. Let's just say I do not want to live through that again.

  5. Jasper is also one of my favorite stones! Thanks so much Julie for picking out these beauties and including my necklace. Sharing!

  6. Jasper is such a fabulous stone. Nature's artwork at it's best with every color you can imagine and designs that can't be matched anywhere. Thank you for including my multi-stone necklace. Will be sharing.
