Prudent Man Agate
This Prudent Man Agate, from Idaho, is one of the first rough slabs I ever bought. It took almost a year for me to feel I had learned enough about cutting cabochons to attempt to cut it. The patterns in the stone look like a mountain scene to me and inspired the texture of the back plate.
While the metal clay was still in the clay state, before firing, it was hand carved on the front and back to continue the patterning in the stone. Sterling silver pendant and chain.
