I found this agate slice about three years ago at a shop in a Cincinnati suburb. I thought the piece was gorgeous, but I didn’t know what to do with it. So, I just tucked it away among my other supplies.
Over the weekend, I decided to try and work with this natural beauty and create a pendant. I wrapped five pieces of brass wire together and then shaped the wire around the agate to form the pendant. I tried to imitate the agate’s natural grain with the wire design.
I used a very fine brass wire to add additional crystals and help secure the agate in place.
To complete the design, I had a few of these beautiful ceramic beads with a nice blue-turquoise color. They complement the agate piece perfectly.
Aside from the fact that I think this necklace is BANGIN’, I really like its strength. Each link is wired together, so you’ll have to be extremely strong to pull this one apart. This one will be around for the ages.
