Following up on my first agate slice experiment, I've made another one. This slice of agate is the most amazing blue with blue and green rings like that of a tree trunk.

I've used blue topaz and amethyst gemstone chips on this one and made a more full Tree with more branches made from sterling silver wire. It's still pretty free-form and it curves along with the rough edges of the agate slice but I really like how it just seems to be growing up and over some natural rock formation.






Love gave the thumbs up on this one so I hope everyone else likes it as well. I've still got more agate slices to play with, but I want to make sure with each, that I find just the right accent stones to go with it. On this one, the blue topaz and amethyst just seemed like the right fit.

As always feedback welcome! Grin

It's gorgeous  Smiley I've never been able to get the whole wire wrapping down. It always ends up looking funky, but yours look great.

Thanks! And it's practice. Lots and lots and lots of practice. Cheesy (My early trees were pretty pathetic and downright embarrassing. I've been making them for several years now which helps a lot!)

BEAUTIFUL. You always make awesome stuff, but I truly think this is my favorite of them all. The way the agate shines through the chips is just perfect.
