Neo Victorian Necklace with Agate and Pearls

About this design:

I saw a string of these huge faceted agate beads online one day and knew I'd happily fight my wallet to the death to have them. I finally figured out what to actually DO with them when I got my hands on some big brass beadcaps. I took one of the more photogenic beads and made a pendant out of it with a large "leaf" beadcap and a cluster of pearls. I accented the chain with two smoky banded agate beads that I got from Limabeads. It's probably one of the simplest of my necklaces since there was no filigree wrapping involved, but I think it's one of my favorites.

    I adore agates and that is one beautiful focal piece. I am glad you let the stone stand by itself…it definitely did not need anything else.
