Moonrise Necklace - DISCOUNTED
This stone is such a knockout - a big old banded agate cut in a crescent moon shape. I spent many, many hours creating a completely different setting for this special stone last fall, and couldn't bring myself to set it in the end, as it just didn't feel right. I scrapped that setting and pushed the stone to a side of my bench, ultimately storing it with my other autumnally hued stones, where I re-discovered it this fall while playing around with ideas and inspiration. I'm so glad I listened to my heart, because this setting is most definitely the one: a simple window setting to let the light pour through and for skin to stone contact, flanked on either side by hand-sawn north stars framed with layers of silver diamonds - heavily textured and oxidized for an ancient, weather worn feeling. The agate is a rusty umber colour that glows orangey-red in the light and is more of an auburn-brown when not in the light. Paired with the prettiest bar and link chain and finished with a lobster clasp. Chain measures approx 20.5 inches, and the pendant hangs an additional 1.5 inches. You can hook the clasp into any of the links in this chain, making the length of this necklace adjustable. Recycled sterling silver as always. Oxidized satin finish for an old world feel.
PLEASE NOTE: I've discounted the price of this necklace by 20% due to a teeny, tiny fracture in the bottom corner of the stone. The price it's listed at reflects the discount. It's a clean fracture that is very close to the corner edge and secured on all 4 sides by the bezel. I am entirely confident that this necklace will last much longer than my lifetime and likely for many lifetimes, but a crack is a crack and thus - a reduced price for you!
All handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques, with my own two hands and a lot of heart and soul. Each North Star Silver order comes lovingly packaged and ready for gift-giving. I use GOTS-certified organic cotton jewelry bags and/or 100% post consumer recycled kraft jewelry boxes with natural cotton filling.
