Green Treasure

About this design:

I purchased this beautiful green agate slice at a gem/rock store in Florida. It was such a gorgeous color I had to have it. It cost me a whole whopping $1! Because it isn't drilled I had to come up with a creative bezel. Here it is! BTW this is dedicated to KittyMom Linda who loves agate slices!


Agate slice, 22 ga GF wire, assorted green agate and green moonstone(from LB) beads, GF beads, GP beadcaps, spacers and toggle clasp

    Wow, this is just amazing!

    I’d love to see a closer pic of it, maybe even one from the side so we can see all of your lovely wire work up close if you get a minute. I’m drooling on this end of the computer!! And trying to figure out how in the world you made it!

    And the agate, stunning!! SLS

    Thanks everyone for the inspiring comments! I’m not very good at describing how I did this, but I can tell you it started with about a 5 ft piece of 22ga wire. This one is totally out of my head, no pattern or directions to follow. Once I started it just flowed, if you know what I mean. I’ll have to think about how to explain directions!

    Did ya hear me scream down there when I saw this one? This is – oh, I don’t know, can’t even find the words! – Simply beautiful, I’m so honored to have you dedicate it to me. Thank you. I don’t know where you got the stone, but I hope you bought more than one piece. Doesn’t it just make your day when you find a piece like this and then look at the price, and then look again because you think it can’t possibly be that price. Congratulations on this absolutely gorgeous piece. Your wire work is astounding – and using the gold just makes it so different. Wowza, how many times can I put this into my faves???

    Wow, I never would have guessed that it was one piece of wire … so pretty, I had to come back and look at it again. Well that, and had to see what Linda thought about it! SLS
