An Apple a day, or an Agate a day keeps bad things away! This amazing piece is entirely hand forged from sterling silver wire and sheet.The components are hammered, textured and fused together to craft this amazing piece. Created just for Bayfield's 2023 Apple Fest, the theme of the pendant is the Dudley Apple. The Dudley Apple was the first variety of apples brought to Bayfield.The leaves and twigs on the pendant were cut from the shape of actual leaves and twigs from one of the local Dudley trees. Two Lake Superior Agates join the apple, twigs, and leaves. Three small bezel set garnets adorn the leaves and one of the twigs.
LAKE SUPERIOR AGATE
Agates are a gemstone with a hardness of 7, harder than Basalt or Rhyolite. Beautiful banding, varied patterns, and eye-catching colors unique to each agate are created by quartz with small amounts of different elements. Red bands are the result of the rusting of iron within the agate when exposed to oxygen. These gemstones can be found on many Lake Superior beaches throughout the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
Properties: Good for security, strength, to raise energy and to enhance personal courage and calming.
