Captive Agates

IMG_4773

I have named these new creations “Captive Agates” and I think the name suits them quite well.  Each Botswana agate is secured within a sterling byzantine loop and connected together with a thicker gauged ring.  The color variations of the agates themselves really catch they eye (the picture really doesn’t do them justice in the least!)  I’m really enjoying working with natural stones of all shapes and sizes.

These were all made using .925 sterling silver handmade rings and faceted natural botswana agates.  Finished with a .925 sterling silver hook and eye clasp or toggle clasp.
