In-Spired Moss Agate

75.00

How do we get so lucky with so many varieties of Moss Agate in Oregon? These two stones come from the same neighborhood with very different results. The top stone is a Thunder Egg Agate with white Common Opal and ‘mossing’ with Agate interplay. The bottom stone is gorgeously clear with olive green inclusions of ‘mossing’ and faint fortification lines tracing the patterns of the dendrites. Hand carved Fine Silver, Sterling, and Copper finish the setting to this inspired Moss Agate spire.

The Thunder Egg and Moss Agates are left open backed in their Fine Silver and settings to let the light shine through. The base of the piece is custom made, mixed metal ‘Terrane’ by which Fine Silver, Sterling Silver, and Copper are heated and hammered until they are combined into sheet metal. The bail loops are Sterling Silver as well as the hook and loop closure on the 1.2mm Greek leather cord. These stones were sourced in Oregon, hand polished, and the setting fabricated from scratch by Karen Britt. Each piece is a one of a kind piece of art, because no two stones are the same and the settings are created by hand, no two pieces are the same (even the earrings). It should be mentioned that all stones are used in their natural state; never dyed or heated to change their appearance. All the metals used are either recycled or fair, humane trade verified and all components used in the jewelry will return to the earth leaving no footprint. Thank you for enjoying the art.
