Chunky Brown and Yellow Botswana Agate with Copper Handmade Necklace
Yellow and brown Botswana agates bring me to a place of earthy goodness. This chunky agate necklace was created by me to reflect the warmth and subtle colors of Autumn. Natural agate gemstones are a true treasure and this necklace abounds with the glorious Botswana agates. I selected a soft yellow banded agate that has been cut and faceted into a roundel shape. The shades will shift from almost white to a translucent pale yellow. On each side of the yellow agates I placed antique copper scalloped bead caps. I paired these with large, natural, brown banded Botswana agate that contain wonderful white and brown banding. These stones were cut into a round shape with multi-facets all around the stones. The faceting is great for catching and reflecting the light. Since no two stones are alike you will find a treasure within each stone. Smaller, smooth round natural agates were spaced throughout with eye-catching antique copper Bali beads between them. The Bali beads contain beautiful details of circles and dots which you can see in the close-up photo above.
For the focal piece I selected another earthy, free form shaped gemstone with a matrix of quartz and jasper combined. The pendant is attached using an antique copper noveau pendant bail. The bail was created by TierraCast. I wanted to keep the lines of the bail simple so that the focus would be on the wonderful gemstone pendant. On each side of the pendant bail I used small, smooth banded agate rounds.
To finish off the necklace I tapered the agate to smaller rounds and attached antique copper wire guards. The wire guards will ensure longevity of this necklace as it prevents wear against the beading wire. For the closure I selected an antique copper leaf toggle. The toggle was also created by TierraCast.
The necklace measures 20 inches or 51 centimeters from end to end and the pendant will add an additional 2 inch drop. BONUS: I will also include a complimentary pair of Botswana agate earrings on antique copper leverbacks. A jewelry pouch is also included for storing or gift giving.
Properties: Agate is a member of the chalcedony family. A power stone that is said to foster love, abundance, wealth, good luck, longevity, acceptance, courage, protection, balance, harmony, generosity, strength, security and appreciation of nature. Botswana agate is associated with the crown chakra and the air, fire elements.

Note: Please be aware that not all monitors will show colors exactly the same. The colors may appear lighter or darker based on the type of monitor you have. As I edit my photos I ensure they are as exact as they can be to my jewelry pieces. Natural and artificial lighting can enhance or diffuse shades of stones and crystals as you wear them. I also use different backgrounds in my photos so that you can see some of the color variance. Enjoy!
