Beautiful Agate

Posted on


A few days ago I was asked to do a semi-precious necklace for a commission piece.  The customer wanted something in brown and neutral tones and initially I had suggested smokey quartz, but whilst sourcing these semi-precious beads I noticed how many colours agate comes in.  In particular 'black lace' agate had not only the desired browns and neutral tones but such a warm lustre.  I knew it would suit this particular customer down to the ground.

The necklace is a long 52 inch 'chain' which can be worn doubled as shown in the picture.  (I also made a little matching bracelet too).  The close up image shows just how beautiful, warm and lustrous the agate beads are.  I made a point of using bright silver plated wires to bring out the shine.
