|Montana Agate - Dragonfly Wing|
Since my first post last week mentioning Rachel's real dragonfly pendant, I've been itching to get another necklace made from the beautiful Montana Agate on my bench. I have a handful of little palm-sized slabs that I saved from the 'dollar bin' at a gem and mineral show and I've been cutting and polishing whenever I get an hour to play - not often enough.
Lately, I've been in the midst of working a batch of things for the local galleries and have felt rather 'production-ish' from time to time so I took a couple of hours last night to set this slice of 'dragonfly wing'.
I'm so pleased with it. Delicate and substantial at once - nothing showy or ostentatious but simple and clean-lined. Not only is it a divine stone and setting, I've scratched the itch to create a thing of beauty.
