New Gemstone piece – Agua Nueva Agate

Handmade artisan pendant
Agua Nueva Agate, Sterling silver, and amethyst accents

I had a really hard time letting this stone go. I am particularly fond of the naturally purple stones and this one is a beauty. Shades of lavender and white swirl through the stone. There are some rusty colored stripes which give some really nice contrast, but what makes this stone so unique is the small drusy pocket near the center of the stone. The crystals look like sugar. The design for this piece went through many changes, and in the end I decided that the stone spoke for itself and needed to be the focal point of the piece.

I hope you like it!
