I made this beautiful Lake Superior agate necklace with an agate we found on a trail in northern Wisconsin. I cut and polished the stone as well as crafted the solid silver setting for this piece. The stone is in a domed teardrop and has good height to it. The bezel that holds the stone is fine silver that I applied texture to. The pendant measures about 1.26 in tall x .64 of an inch wide. The chain is also solid sterling silver and is 20 inches in length. 

A word about what ethical gemstones mean with regard to my work. This stone was hand picked by us from a trail using no tools. I cut the stones in a manner that's safe for both me and the environment. Natural stones are a multi billion dollar industry in the USA. Unfortunately most stones used in jewelry or available to buy online are not made here nor are they safely cut despite consistent industry pressure to make changes. Big stone cutters often utilize marginalized populations in order to pay substandard wages while their cutters work in very dangerous conditions without safety equipment. That's why those stones are so cheap! Stone cutters in some countries have a life expectancy of just 10 years due to silicosis. That means a 20 y/o working in this field often does not live to see 31. They also often work within their homes putting their families and children at risk. The stones cut in this manner overseas are all marked as "ethical" online. Here at Happy Agate Studio my stones are truly ethically cut. I can say this because I cut them.
