A vintage modernist pendant imagined as a stacked arrangement of laths or flat sticks. These silver sticks appear to balance as if threaded through a central silver post that joins a lovely bezel-set agate, at its terminus. The agate is banded or striped horizontally in pink and earthy-green hues; the chalcedony field is unusually clear, giving the striped agate a shifting quality not unlike the chatoyance of tiger's eye. The overall design is slightly askew, giving the impression of something in precarious balance. This is marked sterling and with the silversmith's name: Knutson. It wears beautifully on a twisted silk cord.
