Pastel Color Lake Superior Agate and Iolite/ Sterling Silver Necklace
This Lake Superior Agate cabochon was cut and polished by my husband, Greg. It shows soft pastel banded colors of pinks, grays, and lilac with white scalloped banding. I have lost-wax cast this pendant for it in sterling silver, and oxidized to bring out the patterned relief.
A 6mm Iolite cab-cut stone accents the soft blues in the Agate, plus the Star shaped Freshwater coin pearl in the chain (with a 3mm faceted Labradorite bead) brings out the irredescent pinks.
The Agate cab itself is approx. 1 1/8” width x 3/4” length. Overall pendant is 1.75” width x 1.5” length.
Sterling silver round cable chain is 18”.
The necklace reminds one of a watercolor day on Lake Superior!
