Jewelry Ideas Using Agate
Agate is an umbrella name for a number of varieties of banded chalcedony that come in a multitude of colors and range from translucent to opaque. Agates are found all over the world. Learn more about Agate.
I had the idea to make this pendant as the old counting frame design offers lots of possibilities to personalize a piece of jewelry. The gemstones can be chosen to make the most out of the color combination or emphasize a single color but also to display birthstones of a family or group. It’s a […]
This is definitely a crazy necklace. I loved the octagon shape of this pendant, its beautiful combination of purples, greys and beiges and its large size – a little over 2″ across! The necklace is made up of a lot of different beads, two large silver foil lampwork beads balance out the huge pendant along […]
This necklace was inspired by the artisan crafted lampwork beads. The leopard fire agate, fossil coral focal, autumn jasper and bronzite all compliment the colors in the lampwork beads. I strung the necklace on accuflex wire and then finished it with an antique silver hook and eye clasp. The beads and gemstones are separated and […]
This was my very first attempt at hand knotting beads. I was so nervous but had to try it. I loved the beautiful contrast that the color salmon has against turquoise. So, with this piece, I hand knotted polished round volcano cherry quartz agate & a stabilized oval turquoise bead on white nylon/silk thread for […]
This necklace is made using round olive jade beads, cultured freshwater pearls and an unbelievable Queensland agate and olive jade pendant. This necklace’s leaf shaped sterling silver toggle clasp is just as beautiful. Necklace is strung on softflex .019 beading wire and is 20″ in length.
I love anything dainty and feminine. The pinks, reds, ribbons and rose beads bring that out in this piece. This necklace is very simplistic in construction. I fed rose gold rope chain to through the porcelain beads and the center focal bead, which is faceted carnelian agate. To keep the beads in place, I used […]
This pendant is a natural Indian Agate Stone wrapped with sterling silver half-round wire. When I wrap natural stones, I allow the stone to determine the wrapping. I try to compliment the stone with the style of wrapping that will allow the stone to shine and become a complete accent piece with the wire wrapping.
I started out with the fabulous crystal agate druzy. To get together an interesting mix of complimenting gemstones, I chose different shapes, sizes, colors and textures of Prehnite, amethyst, garnet, apatite, citrine and peridot. The ‘backplate’ is a round shaped grid which offers options to fix the gemstones anywhere you like and is also solid […]
Dragonfly Billabong is a representation of the centrality of water in Australia, a country where droughts feature often with a few “good” years thrown in between in order to make us forget. I used Lacy’s Stiff Stuff as the foundation. I dyed the white foundation with permanent black dye powder mixed into water and let […]
I love being able to use up leftover beads to create a beautiful eclectic piece. I used gold beading wire to string green agate chips, green glass beads of different shapes and sizes, clear Swarovski bicones, and green metallic seed beads. This is one of my favorite brass clasps, so I had to have it […]

I love these blue agate stones, they are so beautiful and unique! The blue agate measures 12x18mm. They are accented by a clear faceted glass bead on top and a metal flower spacer beneath it. Earrings hang from sterling silver French earwires. They measure about 2″ from top to bottom.
Exotic necklace made of Amethyst stones, red-brown Agate chip stones, Swraovksi pearls. The center drop contains Amethyst and red-brown agate stone (attached with a black Swarovski crystal. I specially designed this for my friend from Vietnam for her birthday. I really like the colour combination. It’s easy to make but takes a lot of patience, […]
