A wisp of gossamer between violet threads of crystallized fossil.

I fashion bold and beautiful adjustable agate slice rings, raw crystal and gemstone necklaces in various colors, shapes and finishes and hand gold-leafed agate slice coasters. I use high quality materials sourced from American suppliers and I hand select each specimen, hand assemble the pieces, and all of my items are one of a kind.

Where does agate come from?
Most agates occur as geodes which are formed in volcanic lava which contain gas bubbles that fill with siliceous matter. Variations in this matter (such as water), or the conditions under which the deposit occurs, can cause corresponding variations in the layers, so you will see bands of chalcedony that alternate with layers of quartz. The natural color of agate is usually gray, red, or brown. Any other colors are dyed agate.

What does silver plated mean?
Silver plating is when a thin deposit of silver is applied to the surface of a different metal base. Often it is also lacquered or sealed after plating to further coat the plating and base metal.

What does gold plated mean?
Gold plating is when a thin deposit of actual gold is applied to the surface of a different metal base. Often it is also lacquered or sealed after plating to further coat the plating and base metal.

What does solid sterling silver mean?
These bands are made of recycled and reclaimed solid sterling silver in a width of 16 gauge. Pretty strong, but still pliable enough to adjust the ring size.

What does gold fill mean?
Gold fill means that a solid layer of gold is adhered to a base metal using heat and pressure and gold-filled pieces are 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plated pieces. They are basically the next best thing to 14K solid gold and are nickel free and hypoallergenic. They will not rub-off, tarnish or discolor your skin and are not the same thing as gold-plated or gold-tone pieces.

What does gold leaf mean?
Gold leafing is done with a special adhesive and an ultra thin layer of gold leaf sheeting (this is not karat gold) and then it is sealed with a sealant. I hand apply all of the gold leaf edging and you can see a short video of this process here: http://instagram.com/p/mhkiJDgWey

Are your items nickel and lead free?

Will a ring turn my fingers green?
It shouldn’t! The base metal for the rings that are plated in sterling silver or gold is nickel and lead free brass. Usually if a metal has nickel, it will tarnish or turn green with time, and the “safest” base metals are platinum, gold, sterling silver and brass. All jewelry eventually tarnishes with time, but plating delays this process and preserves the metal’s shine while giving it a silver or gold finish. The best way to delay any tarnishing is to keep your ring away from water, cleaners, lotion and keep it clean and dry at all times.

Please let me know of your positive experience. If you feel that you cannot leave positive feedback, please contact me ahead of time so that I may have an opportunity to assess the situation as your satisfaction is my number one priority. Thank you.
