Stones Telling Stories:
Hot Ripples of Plume
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.
Full Moon Floating Forest
Floating in a sea of clear agate, Marcasite plumes reach upwards like a suspended forest. The gem is set in Fine and Sterling Silver with an open back so the stone is backlit. A White Opal full moon smiles a rainbow of colors down on the sparking trees.
Plumes of Fire and Ice
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.
Upon the closest inspection, this Plume Agate blends red through white through yellow like the plumage of an exotic bird. Held by Sterling Silver and Keum Boo, the setting itself takes on the silhouette of a bird.
Agate, Marcasite, Quartz and Rhyolite team up to create a great green mountain-scape in a beautifully small package. This glowing range sits among a silver terrain that holds the Green Crystal Opal above.
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.
Another fantastic piece off the Carnelian Plume Agate holds the feeling of a white cloud just off the face of the sun with radiant yellow rays bursting forth. A raindrop of cool green Crystal Opal hovers on top with its own dancing radiance.
The burning colors of Carnelian Plume Agate gives way to a dark Marcasite cloud floating through the middle like a cosmic deep space show. The Marcasite particles glitter like stars along with some Quartz Druzy while a green Crystal Opal flares like it's absorbing the brilliant energy.
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.
Continuing with the abstract-but-suggestive theme, this piece could be a big splash of rain coming down, the top of a reaching wave about to break, or whatever you see. The Boulder Opal glimmers the rainbow against milky white mixing with matrix stone. Keum Boo and Sterling Silver seal the deal.
