More about Red Creek Jasper

The colors of a sunset will showcase your talents when you create wired or beaded jewelry with our new Red Creek Jasper beads. These beads — named after an area of China where they're mined — offer a wide range of earthy colors, including striking oranges and mustardy yellows, highlighted by a lovely sage green.

For a rock as old as jasper, which is formed from ancient sediment beds and volcanic ash, Red Creek Jasper is itself relatively new — it's only been sold for half a dozen years or so. We're excited we can offer it among our new selection of beads. Use Red Creek Jasper beads when you're inspired by nature. In these beads, swirling colors are broken up by a lined pattern that gives each bead an undeniably natural look.

Acclaimed jewelry maker Dale "Cougar" Armstrong takes an entertaining look at the makeup and origins of this picturesque stone in a post about Red Creek and other types of Picture Jasper on our Wire-Sculpture jewelry making blog. Click here to read Gem Profile: Picture Jasper.
