I am thrilled with this deign. The Sunrise Earrings shape is from a classic fan shape but I wanted to incorporate Gold and Silver with a pop of color in a semi-precious stone. It just came together!! 8mm Red Agate is highlighted beautifully by a 14ktgf (gold filled) bezel in a shadowbox ... with a 14ktgf ring to attach the 14ktgf earwires. A perfect balance of gold and silver ... the .925 sterling silver hammered finish is stunning -- oxidized to enhance texture. Handmade and silversmithed in my Kensington, MD studio.
Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy.
