Western style jewelry is full of fabulous blue tones, especially shades of turquoise. Many pieces have the soft browns and reds of the desert, too. While these are wonderful shades to wear, sometimes we need to inject another color into our wardrobe. It can be a great way to chase away those winter blues, especially when you wear green.
Green is the color of spring, St. Patrick’s Day, and the month of March, as daffodil and crocus leaves pop up just before these colorful first blooms of the season. Spring is just around the corner, but you don’t need to wait to see the return of green; wear some green yourself, and you will feel vibrant and ready for a new season.
At West Coast Cowgirl, we have some incredible accessories and jewelry with splashes of green, including some of our newest arrivals. Charming and delicate headbands are a growing fashion trend. What comes around, goes around, and here is a perfect example. Our new headbands are a wonderful way to welcome in spring. Our Prisha Feathered Headband is reminiscent of spring fairs of old, and festivals of today, which are blooming everywhere as the days lengthen and warmer weather arrives. The peacock feathers will put a smile on anyone’s face just for the fun of it.
You will feel like the desert after a spring rain, fresh and alive with our new Samar Earrings. The green patina metalwork is a classic Western Style with its tribal motif. Set off with natural stone elements, these earrings look good with your hair up or down, and are sure to turn heads when you walk into the room.
As the days grow warmer, we begin to think of trips to the beach, which are not so far off. If you can’t get the beach yet, shift your attitude by dressing for warmer latitude, and donning our Western Spark Earrings. These seafoam green pieces bring beach memories alive with their soft shading. You can almost hear the ocean waves.
Bright spring greens and flower embellishments will add a spring to your step when you wear our Doulton bracelet. Various shades of green reflect the beauty of a garden; you can’t help but feel happy with this charming piece. This cheery bracelet is perfect for a day out in the sun, on a picnic, or at lunch with friends. Need something green to wear for St. Patrick’s Day? This is the perfect piece!

At West Coast Cowgirl, we pride ourselves on providing beautiful and striking jewelry inspired by the American West. This region is full of history, culture and natural beauty, which has long been reflected in the jewelry designs. Influences from Native American and the Spanish, along with the romanticism of the Old West and the Victorian era, have impacted many styles we see today. This includes the use of natural stones within Western style jewelry. One stone, Jasper, is so amazingly varied in its colors and patterns, it is known as the picturesque stone.
Jasper is found world-wide, and has long been used by many cultures, from ancient Antiquity to the present day. Jasper comes is so many colors and varieties of patterns, it is considered the art canvas of nature. Hues of golden-red deserts, earthy brown canyons, deep spruce forests and rich azure skies are seen reflected in these amazing stones, each one a picture of nature itself.
Within some Native American tribes, Jasper was long used by Shamans as a ‘protector’ stone when they performed healing ceremonies. Spider Jasper is a specific kind of Jasper which comes in shades of brown with either white or dark spider-web like markings. These were thought to be directly connected to Grandmother Spider in many tribal legends. Jasper is also an easy stone to carve, making it an ideal piece to choose in carving stone fetishes, and beads. Our Biraldo Bracelet shows off the striking earth tones that can be found in Jasper, making it easy to see why this stone has long been used.
The range and vibrancy of colors found within Jasper will enhance any piece of jewelry made with this stone. Jasper jewelry connects you with the natural beauty of the American West. Like wearing a piece of art, Jasper bracelets and necklaces are brilliant statement pieces. Our Tamika & Pablo necklaces are excellent examples. When you are looking for a conversation piece to add to your accessory wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with Jasper.
Our latest collection of Stone Beaded jewelry includes several items with beautiful, colorful Jasper.
