The centerpiece of this necklace features two beautiful green and white stones, California Mariposite and India Tree agate. It has an organic, forest like feel to it, with all the different greens and leafy inclusions in the stones and beads. Mariposite consists of a chromium-rich mica, which gives the distinctive green colors along with the white dolomite marble background. It is named for Mariposa, California and is found in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Tree agate has bands and swirls of green over white, giving an earthy feel to the stone. The smaller cabochon of Tree agate is an oval shape, and the larger Mariposite is a symmetrical drop shield shape. I chose to set both stones with a sterling silver serrated bezel, backed and surrounded with 24 gauge sterling sheet. I then created a hanger of coiled half round sterling silver, large enough for Sarah to run the beads through. The colors of the beads pull out the medium green tones and the white of the stones, as well as darker and more pale greens. These beads include Moss agate, Bloodstone, Tree agate carved leaves and rectangles, cultured pearls, Swarovski crystal, and Czech glass. There are multiple sterling silver spacer beads, and larger sterling melon discs to add sparkle to the piece. The elaborate hook and loop style clasp is also sterling silver. This necklace is 20 inches long, and the pendant centerpiece is 3 inches long, by 1 1/8 inches wide. This piece will be elegant on many colors of clothing, both formal and more casual. Sure to be a conversation piece!
