Montana Agate and Black Onyx Sterling Necklace


Montana Agate and Black Onyx Sterling Necklace - Mother Nature has done it again - this time, she created this lovely, translucent gemstone from Montana with its amazing brown and gold inclusions. Please zoom in on the second photo, where I have held the pendant up to the light to highlight the autumnal colors. I paired this agate with a checkerboard or rose cut black onyx. Each cabochon has been set in a pretty gallery-style sterling silver bezel on a heavy gauge back plate. I like my jewelry to have movement, so the two pendants are joined as one by a simple ring, soldered closed for permanency. 

The pendant measures just under 2 1/4" in length and 1 3/8" at its widest point. The sterling silver pendant hangs from an 18" long, patterned cable chain, and fastens securely with a sterling silver lobster clasp.

The sterling silver has been buffed by hand, given an aged patina, buffed again, and tumbled for additional strength.

All metals used in this design are .925 Sterling Silver.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio.  Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  

NOTE:  100% of the proceeds from the sale of this necklace will be donated to Miracle Horse Rescue, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping me help those who cannot help themselves!
