Agate Nebula Bracelet

November 2016
Agate, sterling silver

The intense agate slice at the center of this bracelet has reminded me of a gaseous nebula in deep space. Its deep blues purples are mysterious and captivating. Is it a star nursery? Is it the remains of a supernova? Is it a black hole? I flanked it with the two lavender agate slices because in addition to picking up the lightest color of the center stone, I liked how each had a side that followed the curves of the center stone, and because they emphasized (to me, at least) the swirling motion of a galactic cloud.
