Graceful Grey Agate….New Necklace Design

I love to work with beautiful gemstone beads. I personally select all the stones for my handmade jewellery, and specifically look for beads with an interesting shape or unusual cut. They range in finish from rough and natural, to faceted gem-quality stones.  They are all distinctive and unique – just like each of us.

I individually selected each of these fabulous grey and white striped Botswana agate slivers from a shop in Hout Bay in Cape Town.

I have combined the agate slivers with lovely graduated faceted grey cloudy quartz beads to form a full string of gemstones, highlighted by a scattering of antique silver-toned metal accent beads.   The necklace closes with a fancy shepherds crook hook, which can be used in conjunction with the extender chain to adjust the length according to what you are wearing.  The extender chain has a cloudy quartz gemstone bead charm to finish it off.

Jewellery design is not only just about colour – it’s also about pattern, texture and very importantly, balance.  Each of my gemstone pieces is carefully designed with balance and harmony in mind; my goal being to make the wearer feel beautiful and special.

My handmade jewellery collection contains something for everyone – from earthy casual designs to dressy high-end pieces for special occasions.  To view my designs, please browse through my collection on Etsy.
