Okay, I am being a bit facetious by calling this piece Lil' Bud because this is definitely a statement necklace!
The beautiful Burro Creek Agate is 57.5 mm (2.25 inches) from point to point across the curve, if you do metal work then you realize all the choice words used to get this bezel down:) The coloring in it is just sensational being opaque with hints of lavender. I chose Lepidolite to pair with the Agate which compliments it gorgeously.
The unique flower bud in the middle has been cut,stamped and formed by synclastic hammering with a little chasing for detail.
Many shapes of garnet, pewter color pearls, hematite, and silver seed beads make up the 3 stranded handcrafted chain which measures 14 1/2 inches
The pendant hangs from top of tube to the bottom at a bout 3 1/4 inches
