This Indian Agate crystal necklace is very crystal forward with mainly green translucent stones combined with gold plated beads.
When designing this necklace, I fell in love with the distinctive colours that made up this small collection of stones. Knowing that I wanted to tap into the feelings of peace that Indian Agate is famous for I used many of the more translucent beads and leaned into the greens. An unusual blush Indian Agate stone provides the centre point for my design. The gold beading patten highlights the beauty of the stone as well as allowing you to more easily layer it with your existing gold jewellery.
Indian agate is the stone of eternity. Commonly used in mala beads as it is believed to promote feelings of calmness, peace and happiness. The beautiful inclusions in the more translucent beads are fascinating and make you see how you can use this necklace as a meditation prompt. They are also why it is just a beautiful piece for you to wear.
About the process
All the jewellery is made on a small scale by me here in Byron Bay. In each necklace the stones are hand selected, designed on a board and then strung. Because I’m working with naturally occurring stones every necklace is a one off with subtle colour combinations that can’t be repeated in another necklace. The delicate natural quality in each stone make each one individual and I go out of my way not to buy heat treated or dyed crystals. I want the small imperfections within the stones and individual colour variations that make you very aware that this isn’t a mass-produced item. This curated designing can always be seen in the quality of the necklace.
