Botswana Agate Necklace

This beautiful agate stone is from Botswana, Africa.  It is very unique in its coloring and also in how the stones were cut and polished in irregular shapes but all the same size  The agate beads are separated by 4mm amethyst Swarovski Crystals for a pop of sparkle and color that you will find in many of the agate beads.

See below for a Botswana Agate pendant which highlights the stone cur horizontally and shows the inside beautifully!

Snake Skin Jasper Necklace With Fine Silver Pendant With Hessonite Set Stone

By looking at the designs in the jasper beads it is readily apparent how they resemble the patterns of snake skin.  Thus the name, Snake Skin Jasper.  The necklace is shown draped over a shell I found on the beach and  I loved it's texture.  I made a mold of this texture and created a pendant from the mold in fine silver.  To highlight the colors of the Snake Skin Jasper, I set a 4mm Hessonite stone in the pendant.  Hidden bail on the back is also fine silver.  The necklace is approximately 18" in length and the pendant is approximately 1.5' in length.

NEW   Fine Silver African Leaf With Embedded Pearl

Yes, this is actually made from a leaf I found traveling in Africa!  It is a one-of-a-kind piece as the actual leaf was coated with fine silver in multiple layers (dried in between each application) and then fired in a kiln at 1650 degrees for 3 hours.  The result is the texture remains from the original object, in this case the leaf, but the original material burns off in the kiln, leaving only the fine silver. After firing, I polished , embedded a pearl, and oxidized the "leaf" to highlight the natural texture.  On a sterling bail connected by a sterling ring then placed on 7-strand black cable with a twist-magnetic closure.  The neck wire is approximately 18" in length and the leaf is approximately 2.25" in length.

Just informed by the Gallery this item is SOLD. This item is one of a kind so custom order is not available.
