That's what Wikipedia has to say about shabby chic. And this necklace is what I have to say about it! Yes, I know, it's a piece of jewelry, not a piece of furniture, but who says you can't have both?
This style is now in fashion, and I just know why - because it's gorgeous! I love shabby chic and wish it would never ever go out of style.

Jasper is called the Nurturing stone. This is an earthly mineral, which will 'nurture' you through your time of stress, depression and anxiety. Jasper is known metaphysically as a stone of gentleness, comfort, peace and relaxation.
Its wide availability often makes its powerful energy and beauty under-appreciated, although there are collectors who specialize in jaspers.
To the ancient and medieval world, the most highly prized was Green Jasper, a rare, single-colored variety ranging from pale spring green to a deep tea or olive green, described by one of the ancient Greek oracles, five centuries before the Christian era as "the grass-green Jasper, which rejoiceth the eye of man and is looked on with pleasure by the immortals".
