This is a fabulous piece of jewelry that highlights Dryhead Agate. First discovered around 1950, Dryhead Agates were named after Dryhead Creek along the Montana/ Wyoming border. Although, Dryhead Agates weren't well known at first, today's collectors can easily recognize Dryhead Agates by their orange and brown fortifications, and a variety of vivid colors. Sarah set out the design with Dryhead agate and petrified horn coral. I started with serrated wire bezels for both cabochons. I backed the stones with 24 gauge sterling silver plate and soldered a piece of silver tube for the hanger at the top of the pendant. Sarah then set out to use the following beads: Sterling, Swarovski, Czech, China glass, Red Creek agate, Red jasper, Freshwater pearls, Dyed red coral, Indonesian Petrified coral, Rainbow Brecciated agate. She finished it with a Sterling hook and loop clasp. The necklace is 20 inches long. The pendant is 2 1/4 inches long and 1 3/8 inches wide. This will be a family heirloom for many reasons.
