A ONE OF A KIND SEMI PRECIOUS BANDED AGATE PENDANT, WIRE WRAPPED IN STERLING SILVER SQUARE AND ROUND WIRES. SUPPLIED WITH A NICE STERLING SILVER CHAIN
ABOUT THIS PIECE.
☆. This pendant features a Banded Agate that has been cut and polished to show off its lustre and beauty. It was supplied to me by one of the best lapidary houses in the world.
☆. This Banded Agate has ribbons of various hues of Orange, Cream, Brown and grey. The stone is roughly oval and quite large being around 45mm x 35mm x10mm and after wrapping is 65mm x 40mm x 10mm. This stone is also the birthstone for September, and Gemini Zodiac.
☆. To make your pendant, I hold the stone and turn it in all directions to decide which way is best to wrap it. At this point I will make a couple of sketches.
☆. Using Sterling Silver wires of different thickness, I will then follow the sketch to fashion the cage that will hold the stone. Once the main wires are formed, I will look at the stone to ensure it is right. The stone is then removed and I will continue to make the cage.
☆. The wire ends are then sculpted to form curls and twists to give the pendant its unique form. The wires used to cage the stone will then be twisted or curled to hold it securely
☆. Once it is complete I will polish the whole piece and then hang it on a fine Sterling Silver trace chain 18in long. And pack it a nice gift box. Or in my recycled packaging ready for shipping.
