BLACK ICE is a gorgeous banded black agate and copper wire-wrapped, handmade, one of a kind (OOAK) necklace! Carefully created by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, it is a beauty that will definitely get you noticed!
The banded black agate gemstones are a barrel shape and are primarily deep black in color but also have shades of beautiful browns and stripes of white quartz running through it. But the most appealing part to me is the druzy quartz inclusions that can be found in two of the stones (see the photos). I love druzy! Druzy are tiny crytsals that formed millions of years ago in cavities in a host rock, usually agates and jaspers, but many other stones, too. They sparkle and shine - an added treasure in a gemstone!
The agate barrels, copper daisy spacers and copper beads are individually wire-wrapped with copper wire onto small copper washers. The wire-wrapped part runs about 11" (27.9 cm) until it connects onto banded black agate rounds separated by 2mm copper beads. A fancy copper s-clasp and closed ring finish BLACK ICE wonderfully.
Here's the important information for BLACK ICE:
Banded black agate barrels: app. 18mm x 13mm
Banded black agate rounds: app. 4mm
Copper washers: app. 6mm in diameter

BLACK ICE will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the "language" of the stones and metals.
Matching earrings seen in the third photograph can be purchased separately.
BLACK ICE is positively an elegant necklace that will be worn frequently! Worn with a little black dress or a white t-shirt, it will draw many positive raves!
***Please note: Before you buy this necklace, please make sure you do not have a copper allergy. I cannot refund or exchange this necklace due to an allergy because the copper will be affected and will have turned a mottled color due to your skin acidity.
***Please be aware that not all monitors show colors exactly the same. The colors of the items used to create my jewelry are extremely close to the actual color on my monitor. The colors may appear lighter or darker on your monitor.
