This long handmade, wire wrapped, sterling silver pendant is made with a natural stone cabochon of Laguna crazy lace agate. The colors in this cab are white, yellow and gray. The pattern is ... well ... crazy and lacy. :)
The pendant is wire wrapped with heavy sterling silver wire. Like all of my original silver jewelry, I used solid sterling silver, not filled or coated. I added some hammered scalloped wire on one side to mimic some of the pattern in the stone.
stone ---- 50x21mm
pendant ---- 2.78" / 71mm long; 1" / 25mm wide
bail ---- 7mm
This does not include a chain or cord.
