The cabochons are cut from Flower Agate and Moonstone. Flower agate is a stone from USA, Mexico and Madagascar! ... The “flowers” are a more opaque white chalcedony “plumes” that seem to be coming into focus from the depths of a slightly murky sea. The gem is commonly located in beautiful and sunny New Mexico. In addition to the United States, it can be found in a pretty wide number of world locations. These include Brazil, India, Germany, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Myanmar, Mexico, and Tanzania. Moonstone is composed of two feldspar species, orthoclase and albite. The two species are intermingled. Then, as the newly formed mineral cools, the intergrowth of orthoclase and albite separates into stacked, alternating layers. I faceted the flower agate face to catch the light after polished. I made a flat bezel to hold each cab in place and backed it with solid 24 gauge sterling silver. I thought it needed something to glisten in the sun so I soldered a vine and a leaf which splashes across the piece as an accent. The centerpiece was finished off with a sterling piece of wire which allowed Sarah to bead through the hanger. As I was creating this centerpiece it reminded me of autumn. This piece feels good to the touch. Delicately elegant! Sarah added stone beads of brecciated agate, red jasper and Mexican bird's eye Hickoryite (rhyolite) to pull out the colors of the flower agate. There are sterling silver leaves, and leafy triangles to work with the leaf on the centerpiece. The clasp and spacer beads are also sterling silver. Other complimentary beads are Czech glass, freshwater pearls, and Swarovski crystal. The piece is 21" long plus the 3" pendant drop to give a perfect hanging length. This will be a family heirloom for years to come. Thanks for your interest in our jewelry!
