Jasper Cocoon Pendant

342 – Jasper Cocoon Pendant Mandala

Today I showcase a local artist and friend out of Alpine, Oregon. Jewelry artisan, Jan O’Banion, of Jan E O Jewelry, forged this powerful jasper and German silver pendant loaded with mandala-like shapes. I love the vibrant red of the jasper seeming to be protected within the dramatic silver cocoon.

298 – Hummingbird Breastplate Mandala

Oregon jewelry artisan and friend, Jan O’Banion made this gorgeous ReArt Tin and Mixed Metal Hummingbird Breastplate. I love her attention to details and her creative imagination of putting all these pieces together to form this one-of-a-kind work of art…with all kinds of mandala-like shapes.
