Stones Telling Stories:
Plumes of Pleasure
It's always luck when two stones break close enough in size and shape to make earrings. These two offer detailed golden plumes with black and darker hues to contrast the clarity of the agate in which they are contained. Set in fine silver and copper, they are open backed to let the light shine through when worn. SOLD
When it comes to plume agate, detailed, muli-colored plumes are really exciting. This specimen boasts hue changing plumes against clear agate in a splendid display.A fine silver demi bezel is held by copper cut into symbolic shapes of rivers and mountains where these stones were born. SOLD
This dainty pair of earrings is a tribute to the flowing waters cutting through the high desert that create the birthplace of these stones. Stylized river canyons are cut into copper holding the fine silver bezels and hand polished Green Moss Agates. Sterling silver dangles these rivers from your ears.

Metals are combined here for some fun mineral shape-play. The center stone is a Redish-Purple-Blue Marcasite Plume Agate that appears to have glitter within when viewed in direct sun. The color variations within the stone already look like effervescent liquid so the hammered copper and silver continue the splashiness. Set in Sterling silver and a 1.8mm greek leather cord, it's a unique piece of wearable art for a statement on its own or layered for your favorite metal mixing. PURCHASE
These stones are so intricately painted by nature, they get more impressive the closer you get. White Plume dances in circles set into Shibuishi for contrast. The bottom stone swirls in a psychedelic blending of warm hues and sparking Quartz Druzy from within that would make a hippy lightshow jealous. If you'd love to rock this on a long 'tunic length' setting check out Available Necklaces.
The top stone is amber toned Plume Agate with red linear plumes and a subtle cloud of marcasite on top that is tinted purple. This is mounted upon Shibuishi, the copper and silver alloy that they would decorate samurai swords with. The drop stone is Plume Agate with a deep Druzy Quartz window, both fire and ice. This piece is hung on a choker length, chunky black Greek Leather Cord. If you'd like to rock this (like I have a few times, couldn't help myself) hit Available Necklaces.
Lightning strikes as a green and multicolored flashing Boulder Opal. There's Thunder below as this Common Opal is gently illuminated within showing blues, greens and pink. The rain is contained in both stones echoed by the design in sterling silver.
Like a truffle, this flame colored Plume Agate is a little box of fire to warm your heart on cold days. A Citrine glows over the flame as if ignited. Copper holds the fine silver settings embracing the stones. Keum Boo 23.5k Gold frames this sizzling portrait.
A dark amber colored Plume Agate radiates like an ember, its deepest color that of Marcasite Plume. Floating over head is a Citrine burning with deep golden hues. Thermal swirls of sterling silver dance around them in the composition's rhythm.
