An intricately detailed large plume agate polished cabochon depicts an abstract view of the wilderness, tall Ponderosa pine forest in the distance, drifting clouds in a pale sky. Scruffy brush in the foreground feels like it surrounds the viewer’s feet, as if standing on the edge of a clearing high on a mountain overlooking the vista below, perhaps a river flowing below the pines. Set in sterling silver that is detailed with beaded accents, and two gorgeous faceted labradorite gemstones with the fiery blue flash of an aurora borealis, something one might also see at night in the Big Skies of a Montana range. A feather, maybe an eagle’s, crowns the top of the pendant leading to the bail that is spangled with tiny brass stars. The pendant is strung on a thick, natural saddle brown leather cord with extension chain and lobster clasp.
Measurements: Pendant itself is 1-1/2″ wide by 3-3/8″ long, from top of bail total drop is 4″ long. Leather cord is 16″ long with 2″ extension chain
