Rio Puerco Agate pendant
Spent a day hiking around the desert near the Rio Puerco which is about 70 miles southwest of Albuquerque. Great place to enjoy New Mexico's desert!
Initially the piece of grey rough showed nothing special, but a few days later as I was deciding to cut something, I grabbed this piece of agate. As I began to cut the agate, cool sunset colors of red and white began to show. It was easy to design taking into account the sunset. Hope you enjoy this pendant!
The stone is backed with brass backing and held with silver prongs. The bail is sterling silver. And the circle is brass with sterling silver cups and ring.
Dimensions: ~ 60 mm X 48 mm
Chain not included.
