Agate is the banded form of the mineral Chalcedony, which is a microcrystalline variety of Quartz. Agate is the most varied and popular type of Chalcedony, having many varieties on its own. Although the pattern on every Agate is unique, the locality of an Agate will provide resemblances in banding style and color.

Fashion bracelet easy DIY by Zegna Aston

DIY

It’s easy then you think. Little patience and you will have custom piece of jewelry.
You will need:

  • Wire 28g (you can buy it in any beading or craft store)
  • Gemstone cabochon
  • Crochet hook #10
  • Tube slide Clasp

This DIY for people who know how to crochet. Lots of basic lessons you can find online.
Start by crocheting enough chain stitches so that the length of your chains will be just enough to wrap your cabochon tight.

With a slip stitch, make a loop and start working in circle crochet 1, chain 1, and skip 1, crochet 1 until the end of the loop.
For the 2nd row, do the same, but skip 3 stitches approximately every 1/3 of the loop, so that your loop will begin to get smaller.

Then you will need to crochet the actual Bracelet cuff.
Start by crocheting chain stitches. Measure it around your wrist. It should be tight. My wrist is about 40 stitches. Then simply crochet the single stitches. As many rows as you need. You will need some practice to make the stitches evenly. Be prepared your fingers will hurt!
And one more thing. Try to crochet the whole bracelet at a time. If you will stop and decide to continue next day the stitches will look different.
I use a rubber mallet to hammer the bracelet a little. It makes it flat. But you don’t have to do it. Everything depends on your taste 
When the Bracelet is done use the same wire attach the clasp and cabochon.

Enjoy your Bracelet!

Purple Agate– Is the stone of meditation and spiritual transformation. This stone works on the upper Chakra. It assists in allowing trust with your own intuition and opens the spiritual flood gates to a realm of endless possibilities. It gives us the space to “be” our spiritual selves and clears the mind for extraordinary vision and insight. Agate is composed of microscopic crystals of Quartz laid down in colorful bands or ribbons. The appearance of agate is waxy and soft. Almost always translucent and occasionally transparent. Agates are grounding stones. They help obtain a better physical/emotional balance. They work to raise consciousness.

Some interesting Facts about Mona Lisa

Most people know that Mona Lisa painting is created by Leonardo da Vinci, but the identity of the woman still remains unknow. Some people even think it is Da Vinci in female form. But the most commonly believed is Lisa Gherardini, born in 1479. She was 24 years old and the mother of two sons when she posed for the painting. Why he chose her is still a mystery.
The original name of the painting is Monna Lisa, it was a common italian shortening of Madonna, meaning “my lady.” But can you believe it, the most recognized name of this painting now is because of a spelling error(Mona Lisa).
