Up for sale is a beautiful Dendritic Agate cabochon artfully wrapped in a tension forged sterling silver wire wrap. This is a beautiful stone that has truly unique fernlike trace elements scattered throughout the stone. It is a lovely milk white and translucent clear which perfectly highlights the black fern shapes within. Its neutral colors will also go with any outfit while being spectacular enough to still draw the eye. To top it off are the swirling waves of sparkling sterling silver which securely grasp the stone and really make it pop.
Scientifically, dendritic agates are call such due to their internal collection of dendrites. Dendrites are fernlike inclusions of iron, manganese, or other metallic oxides that create bold patterns within the stone.
Metaphysically, dendritic agate is known as the "Stone of Plentitude" and brings abundance and fullness to all areas of life. It also encourages perseverance and patience.
My wire work is all done by me in a tension forging technique using a hammer and anvil. I have been using this technique for almost 17 years with great results. I call it tension forging because all that holds the piece securely in the wrap is the tension of the wire. It is a single piece of wire and there is no glue or solder added making it exceedingly organic while still remaining very secure.
