With the dendrites at different levels within this agate, adding depth to this live edge stone; she provides a stunning landscape.
Wrapped in a fine silver bezel and hand set sterling prongs, this is set on a sterling silver backplate. Behind the stone peeks through a bright silver moon, hand etched on a naturally oxidized background, to give the effect of a moonlit evening.
This piece has a faded oxidation effect, being more dark in the front and transitioning to a shiny silver on the backside (please see my video). She was oxidized using an old school, time consuming, non-chemical method bringing forth natural deep and smoky oxidization colors.
The face of the pendant is about inches 0.9 tall including the bail, by about 1.05 inches wide. It hangs from a 20 inch shiny sterling silver ball and cable chain and fastens with a small sterling lobster clasp. — The handmade bail on this one is oversized, so it can accommodate removing the chain it comes with to one of your own, should you choose.
This is handmade and one of a kind. I have created this in an eco-friendly manner using recycled silver — from hand with no harsh jewelers chemicals and no power tools.
The old fashioned way.
Thus, it has taken me a considerable amount of time compared to using other modern jewelry techniques. Therefore, file marks, as well as asymmetries are all part of the hand-fashioned process.
Do not submerge this necklace in liquid, as a haziness will form over time behind the stone.
** PLEASE NOTE: I can not make changes to sizing, chain lengths, or oxidation preferences once a piece is complete; I am not set up to do so. How my items show here is the final product. Because of my power tool-free ways, and lack of traditional jewelers chemicals in my process, this piece is sold as you see it here. **
