Dendritic Agate Pendant
One of my most favourite pieces, this is a fabulous stone with an organic granulation frame.
The dendritic agate is a milky white colour with dark fern markings. I have set this with 4 talon like claws, clutching the stone in place. The stone is then surrounded by granulation, little silver balls of various sizes that remind me of lichen. The whole piece was oxidised to make it black and then the high points have been polished back to silver to make all the little details stand out.
There is a bail at the top of the pendant and a sterling silver chain passes through it, finishing with a lobster clasp.
The back of the pendant has an oval cutout to allow some light through the stone. There are also marks left from the making process, a crack from rolling out the silver and bumps where it started to melt during soldering. It's full of character and texture.
The pendant is an oval shape, 3.5cm x 2.5cm and the chain is 50cm in length.
Postage is included in the price. All items are posted in one of my jewellery boxes to keep them safe on their travels. They also all come wrapped, perfect for a gift to yourself or if sending to a lucky friend. If you would like your order sending direct to them let me know and I can include a handwritten message to make it extra special.
My aim is to post within 2 days of receiving your order for items I have in stock. Any custom orders or made to order items will have a 4 week lead time so please keep this in mind when ordering. You can always get in touch if you need something ASAP and I will see what could be done but this would depend on my current workload and schedule.
Thanks for reading if you've got this far!
