I have been doing a little wire wrapping. This is my third piece.
Cut this cab from a piece of Holley I dug back in the 1970's.
22 ga sterling wire and an 18 in sterling chain.
Simple stuff, but it lets the stone stand for itself.

That is awfully pretty stuff. It seems to be very hard to find in that quality because I never see any that nice.

I was in high school back in the 1970's and was lucky enough to spend time in the Holley agate beds.
A friend and I would drive up on Fri night from Eugene and spend the night in my car then go dig agate all day Sat before driving home.
Great fun and I have managed to drag along some of the heirloom rough with me for the last 40 years....
Finally getting around to cutting some.

It is my understanding that the area that this is found has been covered up and is private property and you can no longer dig there.   dunno dunno dunno

Yeah,
I have heard there are fining people and impounding cars. The property is in timber management and the owners seem to lack a sense of humor about their trees being uprooted!
The digs there were quite extensive and a lot of area was degraded by the excavations.
It was a great experience to have had the chance to participate in the removal of some of the material.
