Silver, Copper Mushroom Pendant with Agate and Ladybug



I was inspired by the many mushrooms that popped up all over our property this fall. My first step was to find a few cabochons that had the right shape to be mushroom caps. This is one of them - a lovely agate with swirls of brown, red and dark yellow against a milky background. I created a stem out of copper which is slightly textured and antiqued, and added a silver and copper ladybug. A cut out frog leaps across the back of the stone. Three sterling jump rings act as a bail.  Lapidary work on the cabochon is by Juvy Andres of J.C. Cabochons.

SIZE:  This pendant hangs about 1 1/2 inches and is about 1 1/2 inches across the mushroom cap.  This pendant is sold without a chain. I offer a variety of chains and cords which can be purchased separately.

MATERIALS:  Sterling silver, Fine silver, Copper, Agate

PROPERTIES OF STONES (information compiled from various sources):  Agate is said to strengthen the body and mind as well as promote courage. and is supposed to facilitate the ability to discern truth.
