Developing a piece of jewelry is a different journey every time. To create my moss agate pendant I first sketched the shape I wanted to see, an angular pendant that hung at a jaunty angle.
I wanted the gemstone to be edged in something textured. I wasn’t sure if it would be in diamonds or in more of an Etruscan bead.
Initially, I thought I wanted the pendant in either labradorite or green agate, but as the piece came to life, I felt like it needed a rawer looking gemstone to capture the Cascade Mountains. The green, mossy appearance of Moss Agate encapsulated the damp, lush feeling of the Cascades.
From the drawings a piece of rough moss agate had to be selected. Here was the piece of rough. It’s hard to imagine this turning in to a smooth, beautiful stone, but that’s what happened!
When the final piece arrived I couldn’t wait to try it on and see how it looked! Amazing to see an idea come to life! Now I just can’t wait to see someone wearing it!
love life, live genuinely
