Accentuate with Agate

What a better way to start the day than photographing creative and artful crafts that excite you! On a fine morning in March at the studio, Together with our partner stylist, Ms. Vna Routel of Love and Metaphor we did a product shoot for an Agate dealer, Honey and Cinnamon Spice. A brainchild of Ms. Gerlyn Balajadia, a passionate lifestyle artist, a General but is now based in Singapore.
It agate me so much hope.  Yes.  I said that right.  Agate what?  According to wikipedia it's a cryptocrystalline variety of silica, characterised by its fineness of grain and brightness of color.  But if you ask me, it's a divine crystalline piece of artwork. The colors are mind-blowingly beautiful and whimsical. One can enjoy an array of combinations and mixtures that are naturally created by nature. The hues are captivating, magical and ethereal, that anyone could spend long hours staring at it and still feel entertained and enthralled. With its distinctive styles and patterns, each agate is unique in its own habit thus no two Agates are alike.

You can have this nature's masterpiece in your own abode by having them as carefully crafted home decors.  Forget the printed plastics, the stellar steels, the dyed or transparent glasses, the carved woods, when we have the real deal. 
Agate crystals can be used as wedding give aways, candle holders, perfume coasters, table top decorations, and bookends.  Surprise your guests by serving them with drinks on purplish blue with gold rimmed or gilded edged coasters. 
Fascinate them with bookends made of blocks of crystals that look like a million bucks .  Make them cry with envy with your table top natural crystals. 
Captivate them with your huge agate crystal plates.  Excite them with agate weights to hold your magazine or paperworks down.

Tickle their senses with different mixtures and colors  of flat crystals.  Amuse them over tea time with your tea crystal coasters.  Make every corners of your house exciting with these by using them anywhere, or anyhow, as an added element to make that much needed magical boost in your space.

When your interiors couldn't be so boring, there's still hope just by using these wonderful agate crystals. And so in the end of the day, you can always experience this magical gift of nature right at the comforts of your home.
