This silver wire wrapped agate is such a dark blue that it's nearly classified as onyx.

Description: Beautiful agate gems can be transformed into wire wrapped pendants - amazing centerpieces on any necklace. Rose uses wire wrapping in a unique and alluring style, creating some amazing art.



In amongst the crystals and stones my friend handed me were some sliced agates. I had last seen this type of Agate done as a hanging in a store in Old Town, Celebration, Florida, so I was surprised that you could actually wrap it.

Again, a challenge, but don't you love them?

I used a variety of coloured craft wire and a myriad of techniques to bring forth the beauty of the agate itself. Needless to say, I have many more to work on... This simple stone is so underrated in its beauty.

Just handle one and make it into a piece of jewelry and you will feel the energy it gives. A welcome jewel, I feel it can balance anyone in the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual areas of their lives.

It also helps to strengthen and enlighten. I work as a spiritual medium along with making jewelry, so I do tend to go off of the energies I perceive when working with crystals/stones.

Of course, these are my beliefs and opinions, so please don't be offended by them.

Browsing after a heavy week, here I happen on inspiration: this beautiful agate wrapping. I wrap our local semi-precious stones too, but this is different and clever - and the wire-wrapping of the actual wrapping wire (and that slider) is a great idea. Thanks for giving me more ideas to expand my own creations. Happy wrapping from RSA
