Moss Agate occurs in a multitude of colors, especially greens. This piece is more like ‘lichen agate’ with it’s gracefully light hues and shapes within the clear agate. The perfect pairing is a similarly colored 5mm Green Petrified Wood cabochon displaying an emerald green striation of wood against mint ice cream green. These forest stones are stacked with sculpted Fine Silver suggesting the wind through the trees tipping the stone balance.
The Moss Agate is left open backed in its Fine Silver setting to let the light shine through. 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.
