Dizzy for Druzy

Filed under: Uncategorized — by serendipper @ 10:46 pm

I think these agate slices with druzy are just fabulous, and my clients do too. Three of these have been snatched up already!

I carefully selected the black agate beads to match this large agate specimen with lots of movement in it. The little red and black agate rondelles and copper spacers are from Magpie Gemstones. The copper wire clasps hook in front, and the pendant comes off so the client can wear the necklace by itself.

This agate slice is a beautiful work of art, so I set it in a copper frame. Hand selected brown and black agates bring out the varied tones in the focal. Luscious caramelized agates, copper spacers, and copper beads are from Magpie Gemstones. This necklace is still available.

This agate slice is dark and moody, so I wrapped it with dark steel wire and bright silver wire. Little sardonyx beads cling to the sides like barnacles. The pendant is removable and can be hung on another necklace. The necklace is a simple strand of beautiful dark black agate beads, some opaque, some transparent, and pewter beads.  I already have a request for another one!

And last, but certainly not least, the ever popular round agate druzy. The client selected all the beads and told me the length, and I added the spacers and played til everything came together. Quartz, gorgeous striped onyx, black agates, and pewter beads. Steel wire for the clasp, sterling wire for the earrings.

  1. Gorgeous work! I particularly like the last one. That focal is an amazing stone. Your removable pendents are smart too. Gives your customers so many more options.
