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.
