These pretty green cracked agate beads, with a slightly chalky matt finish and subtle patterns and striations have been made into a necklace and matching earrings. Each bead is about 12mm wide and 8mm thick and I have put a 4mm silver-plated round bead between every two agate beads to help give the necklace flexibility.
Some believe that green cracked agate has healing, protecting and calming properties.
The necklace is 45.6cms (17.9ins) long and finished with a bolt ring clasp. Each earring consists of two agate beads between smaller silver plated round beads. Each is 3cms (1.2ins) long from the tip of the ear wire to the bottom of the earring. Please be aware that, because the beads are stone, these earrings are a little heavier than many similar sized pieces – each weighs 4gms.
Because the beads are made from a natural product there are very slight differences in the size of some of them. They have many different surface patterns, which only adds to their charm.
The earrings have silver plated earwires (hooks). These can be changed to sterling silver for an extra £2. Please choose the type of earwire you would like from the ‘choose options’ button prior to purchase.
The necklace will be sent wrapped in acid-free tissue paper in a sturdy cardboard box for safe travel in the post.
Hello, my name is Jane. I have been making and selling jewellery for the last 15 years or so. What began as a hobby to help me relax after a busy day at work has now become something of a passion. Over the years I have explored many different jewellery making techniques and, although my current interest is particularly in beadweaving, I have never managed to settle entirely into one particular genre and probably never shall. Thus my work is eclectic and I am always open to new ideas and to learning new skills.
I realised early on that my beading could help me raise money for SIFT (Seed International Fund Trust). SIFT is a small Christian charity that works to relieve poverty in one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere, Nicaragua. Having visited this beautiful country several times and seen with my own eyes the level of need I want to do what I can to help.
However now I am retired and have more time to spend on my interests, I also want to expand my fund raising activities to support other charities from time to time.
Four years ago I moved to beautiful West Yorkshire with my husband and three cats. All items in my shop are handmade by me in our smoke-free home. I also keep the cats well away from the jewellery making – not only for the comfort of my customers with cat allergies but because past experience has taught me that my little tubes of seed beads are an irresistible attraction and will need to be retrieved from under the sofa and behind the washing machine if they are not kept out of the way of furry paws.
If you see something you like but would prefer it in a different colour or a different length, please contact me. I cannot guarantee to be able to help, but it is often possible.
