Description

This is a fabulous necklace in purple and black. We started with a Purple sage cabochon. Amethyst Sage Agate (sometimes called Purple Sage) is named for it purple and gray color and lovely black manganese dendrites. We then took a tektite and made it into a cabochon. Tektites are natural glass objects primarily composed of silica. Tektites found on Earth are formed by large asteroidal or cometary impact with the Earth. Energy from the impact melts terrestrial rock and ejects it into the upper reaches of the atmosphere. I created a bezel of flat sterling wire for both cabochons. I made a hanger for the pendant out of 1/8 inch tubing and delicately soldered it to the top of the setting. The back is a solid piece of 24 gauge sterling silver plate. Sarah did an excellent job in using the following beads. Sterling beads, Black onyx discs, Chinese glass beads, Cultured pearls, Czech glass, Swarovski crystals, black tektite beads, Lepidolite, Purple sage Agate, Amethyst.

I bought this ring from Fraustojewelry and commissioned a second one in another stone. I was astonished that Sarah and Patrick finished my order by the next day and shipped it immediately! Beautiful work, fabulous communication! I am delighted and would gladly order from them again!

This is an exemplary specimen of malachite; Sarah and Patrick truly have a trained eye for curating stones. The stone, set in carefully scalloped sterling, has a supremely reflective high shine. The countless swirls and multiple distinct hues of green make for a striking piece of jewelry.

Sarah and Patrick were once again a dream to work with. Incomparably prompt service with a wealth of product knowledge.

This piece is simply stunning. While the photos were enticing, the physical product exceeded all my expectations. The sweetwater agate itself is gorgeous with distinct patterns and an incredibly polished shine; the impeccable sterling setting perfectly suits the whimsical asymmetry of the stone.

Sarah and Patrick were great to work with. They quickly provided expert information about the materials and got my bolo tie to me in just a few days. I admired their collection for quite awhile before placing an order and will absolutely be doing more business with them soon. They are clearly adept craftsmen with a winning sense of style.
