Creative Metalsmithing from Scratch with Kim St. Jean
Gemstones have been used since ancient times in not only jewelry making, but also vases, sculpture, architecture, and religious ornamentation. Agate in particular has been used for thousands of years in hardstone carvings, becoming the hilts of weapons, sculptures, and signet rings.

Agate is a versatile gemstone to work with in wire jewelry making. Choose a popular Mexican crazy lace stone for a intuiting focal point on a bracelet, or try a subtle blue lace agate for an elegant pair of earrings. Green moss agate and tree agate always go well with copper wire and nickel wire . Try a new pattern with a new agate cabochon and let your creativity flow!
