Agate Sparkler Sterling Wire-wrapped Necklace


Here's a new design--chunky banded agate beads with black stone tubes and a variety of crystals, wire-wrapped with more crystal dangles. This necklace sparkles and shimmers and hangs beautifully. I guarantee compliments when you wear this one. The wire used in this well-made creation is 22 gauge sterling silver. Wear it to fill in a vee neck or over a sweater. Black would be especially nice. Either way it will be smashing and exquisitely chic for any occasion. While the large photo is not as detailed as it could be, here's a closeup.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The necklace is 20 1/2 inches long.

Note: Agate is a form of chalcedony, often banded, that comes in an amazing variety of colors. It forms by filling a cavity in a host rock. Agates are found throughout much of the world; the most famous mining of the mineral in Germany’s Nahe Valley. It was highly valued as a talisman in ancient times and is said to quench thirst and protect from fevers. Ancient Persians used agates to divert storms. Some use agate to achieve success in international trade!

Most agates occur as nodules in ancient volcanic rocks or lava where cavities where filled by silicate and zeolitic minerals deposited in layers upon the walls of the cavity, with the first deposit forming the outer skin of the agate.

Enjoy wearing this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
