Lisa's dendritic agate and labradorite pendant

“Thank you for my lovely pendant!! The stones are gorgeous! I love everything about it😍 I’ve worn it non stop!”

Lisa’s feedback on her pendant.

Stones on Instagram

Lisa spotted this beautiful dendritic agate in a bench photo on Instagram! I often post pictures of stones I’m working with, or am about to start working on. Sometimes that sparks an interest and I can make the stone into whatever piece my client wants. I had planned to use this stunning dendrite together with a gorgeously flashy blue Labradorite and luckily Lisa liked that idea and we went for that.

The design

I set the stones into very simple sleek bezel settings, to make the most of the beautiful stones. I love showcasing beautiful gems and sometimes all they really need is a simple setting. I’m a great advocate of “less is more”. The brushed finish makes this a really elegant and understated, yet contemporary pendant. Apparently Lisa wears it a lot and has had compliments on it too!

Lisa also wanted a handmade clasp. We used a lovely sleek rounded box chain, my favourite chain to use, as I think it’s elegant but cool and contemporary too. And because snake chains sometimes feel too generic and a little boring! So, I made a handmade hook clasp and attached that to the box chain. I’m really pleased with the result and it makes a standard chain look much nicer with the handmade touch, to go with the beautiful pendant.

A little video

I did a little quick video of the pendant in my hands, that show the glorious gems better than a photograph can!
