"Ring of Fire"


About this design:

"Ring of Fire" was inspired by my love of fire agates. They are my very favorite stones. I paired them with 14mm orange druzy agates from Afghan Tribal Arts. Amber colored Czech rounds compliment the design and my metal of choice was copper. I used several different shapes, egg shape, two diamond filigree beads and small cones. I used an unusual copper clasp to complete the necklace. I love this piece because the fire agates are beautiful and the sparkles in the druzy agate shine through.

Components:

11 14mm orange druzy agates, three bright orange fire agate nuggets, amber Czech glass faceted rounds from Lima Beads, copper accents in various shapes and sizes, copper toggle clasp.

    Gorgeous statement piece. What a wonderful sunny+happy vibe it has. Your choice of stones is excellent.Those druzy Agates are a great compliment to the Carnelian. Copper was the perfect choice for this too!
