Red Rose Stripe Agate Brooch
Overall, this ample pink, black and purple brooch is 3 3/4" tall and 3 1/4" wide. The Banded Red Rose Stripe Agate cabochon is smooth in texture and reflects light beautifully. This brooch encompasses a variety of different beads and fabric giving it a unique raised texture. The Agate itself measures a generous 30x28mm. Outward of the stone are layers of cupchain, with silver French wire embroidery, faceted lilac glass beads, seed beads, 4mm bicone crystals, twisted nylon black chord, 3mm faceted crystals and 4 teardrop rhinestones occupying each "corner" of the oval. Finishing the frontal design is a dainty black fabric flower embellished with a rhinestone and seed beads. Inclusive, the black microsuede backing and a secure and easy open/close bar pin, permanently fixed under the backing, insures you will never lose your brooch due to a faulty clip.
Red Agate has been used for centuries as a protection against negative energies while instilling its wearer with self-confidence and positive vibes. It is said to light the fire in your heart and motivate you to pursue what you want.
This is definitely a 'statement' brooch.
