Spring Thaw: SPROUT dyed agate necklace in Sterling Silver

Type: necklace

Pastel colours always seem right as the snow melts. The days are getting lighter and longer. Things haven't quite de-frosted, but this time of year always brings about a hopefulness and promise of the return of bounty and colour. Here is a small collection of pieces I've created as I dream about the ground waking up after winter.

A beautifully patterned dyed agate is set in a bezel setting. The way the translucent part of this stone reflects the light is beautifully luminous. The back of the piece has a nice surprise--a tiny sprout cutout in the backing.

Pendant measures 2cm x 3.5cm and hangs on a rectangular link 18" chain.
