I had this piece of agate for about four months before I came up with a design for it. The stone itself is thick yet translucent, and the unique pattern inside the stone called for an organic shape. The depth of the pattern seems like it’s moving forward, so I needed to make a piece thick enough to honor that movement—and at the same time I wanted light to pass through the stone while forming a substantial piece of silver. This definitely called for hollow work.
