I love this agate bead because of its richly colored banding which brings to mind a nice cup of coffee swirled with creamer ... or maybe that's just me. I tested the oxidation process several times on scrap pieces to get just the right amount of oxidation to match the darker bands in the stone. It was definitely a learning process but I thoroughly enjoyed playing "mad chemist" for a while.
This pendant is made of raw copper wire, which means there is no enamel coating. The copper will continue to tarnish with time and may require light polishing (depending on preference). Wearing it against the skin may cause skin discoloration which will not harm you. To avoid discolored skin, wear a piece of clothing between your skin and the piece of jewelry or consider coating the jewelry with clear nail polish or some other clear sealer - just remember to reapply periodically as it may wear off. Please remember that jewelry should not be stored in direct sunlight and should be kept out of water if at all possible.
Due to the nature of monitors and screens, the color may vary slightly in real life.
