“A gate to the World”

Description from Kats Pajamas: I tend to go through "phases" with my designs. This week (longer, but we'll call it a week, right?) I'm completely enthralled by agates.

All colors, patterns, origins, and varieties. From simple basic river tumbled agates found in a creek, to gorgeous agate cylinders.

They are "agate" to the world and "agate" to history as well, as they resemble the many layers of the earth that denote the passing of time. They also bear testament to how beautiful it can be when you find an eclectic mix of colors and histories together in one place.

    “layers of earth” and “passage of time”… holding some gems really feels like I have been transported at that place in time. I’m amazed by the conditions it takes for these to form so beautifully. I suddenly feel finite and grateful. Wonderful description!

    Another favorite! This combo is so sneaky good – - I keep seeing the stones in my head, hearing bits of your description, and I am compelled to look at it again. That Blue lace Agate really ties it all together since it pulls from the cool blue in the warmer tones. Genius. Thanks!

    Any all-Agate pick is a favorite of mine, KatsPJs! Agates hold a special place in my heart because they were my late Dad’s favorite stone. He was a “rock hound” from Iowa who loved to come up to Minnesota with our Mom to visit his daughters, but especially to hunt and peck on the beaches of the North Shore of Lake Superior. I still have some of his creations.

    Great work! Agate beads are probably my all-time favorite–so useful, so versatile. So much depth as you gaze into their layers of color & transparency. They keep me in awe of the beauty of creation around us. Love the touch of color with the Blue Lace.

    Interesting grouping. I especially like your natural agate pieces and your crazy lace donut.
