Butterfly Pendant (Crazy Lace Agate)
Agate has been used in jewellery for millennia. In gemstone lore, it’s seen as a calming, grounding stone, perfectly suited to our delicate sterling silver butterfly pendant, which is presented as if it had gently landed and is seen in profile.
Framed in sterling silver and on an 18" sterling rolo chain, the piece is backless and looks equally good from both sides. Using gemstone inlay, a technique is reminiscent of stained glass, this butterfly's wing is cut from crazy lace agate. The subtle pattern and play of color in the natural gemstone gives the piece its unique appearance.
The stone in this necklace has been treated with a clear resin as part of the inlay process. This colourless resin serves to increase the durability of the stone.
