I found this gorgeous Agate geode slice but it was broken in half. I loved the mint green color on this Agate and how it was translucent with many characteristics inside the stone. I decided I had to make something with this stone. Using my new copper sheet, I made this fold formed "bail" for the geode. Since I couldn't solder yet, cold connection it is!
I decorated the front edge with ruffles created using my new Fretz hammer! It's light weight with small heads made it easy to control. Love it! I textured the rest of the plate with my texture hammer. Then I punched holes on the sides and stitched it to close the bail. At first I was going to leave it as is but I disliked how straight it looked. I was going to pound the top with a ballpeen hammer, but I was afraid to break the Agate stone. After some thoughts, my decision fell on making decoration using wire. A few swirls and twists later I'm done.
This necklace had so many details I felt the need taking more pictures than usual to flaunt the details. I so freaking love this Agate copper necklace! A perfect way to end the year 2010 :) I wore it at Christmas. Our first Christmas together as husband and wife.
Big Bold Handmade Copper Agate Necklace. Grandeur Necklace.
In addition to the Agate Geode, I also used: Snowflake Obsidian, Pineapple Quartz, Amethyst, Golden Rutilated Quartz, crystals, and deer skin leather cord.
Look how amazing is the pattern inside the stone!
