2-Step DIY Pendant Necklace with Agate

I love agate. The stones are so gorgeous with rich, swirly colors. I’ve been searching for a pretty agate ‘slice’ for ages and finally hit on the answer: Etsy. Duh, right? Is there anything you can’t find on Etsy? Then, naturally, I spent hours looking at every.single.piece of agate for sale to find the perfect color and size. This pretty green one was just right! Turning it into a pendant necklace is the world’s easiest DIY.

    How do you get the gold, silver… that serves as the bezel on the agates? I’ve seen them both ways but would like to make it myself if possible.

      I realize this question is 10 months old, but, for others who have the same question, go to the web sight of “Darby Smart”. She shows two different ways to create a bezel for it. One is with a small chain and the other with a gold paint pen. Hope this helps!

    I love agate. LOVE. And my sweet little seven year old bought me a slice (with her own money, no less!) while we were on vacation last summer. I’m totally turning it into a necklace! She’ll be thrilled and I’ll get to wear a pretty little memory of both our vacation and her sweetness. #Win!
