We love using agates for Celtic style pendants and have been looking forward to this Gem and Mineral show for the last two months! Our goal was to find a few agates for some pendants creations. Amidst all the dazzling gems and minerals, we managed to stay focused and scouted around the show for some beautiful new sliced agates. Not too large but perfect for our primitive Celtic pieces.
These will make perfect pendants. The largest blue agate measures about 2 3/4″ in length. The different hues of blue and the translucent softness of the color in between the striated patterns are simply lovely.
I think the top stone in this next photo will look great with flamed patina copper pieces. The warm colors of the copper and stone will be perfect and full of Celtic Tribal character.
Blue with blue always looks good and I can’t wait to see what this midnight stone will look like when it’s complete. Can you tell I’m hoping for some blue patina or beads?
The agate is trimmed with its own accent of a thin black frame which is bordered with turquoise blue. Organic artwork.
This little photo collection shows a montage of sweet textures, lines, shapes and colors. I wish I had collected five pieces for this shot instead of four. Oh well, sweet just the same.
Until next time,
