The lapis lazuli stone has been held in high regard for centuries; it can be found as part of jewellery since ancient times. It's intense blue colour gave us the ultramarine colour; which was the most expensive blue pigment for painters all over the world for centuries; and it was used by famous renaissance and baroque painters. It has been a statement of wealth with nobles who could afford a painting where the artist used a lot of blue; so in renaissance times it was a symbol of wealth.
As wire wrapping is an art in itself not only will you poses an item with semi precious stones; you will also own an individual piece of art. Each wire wrapped object is unique; no two items are alike. Wire wrapping is all hand made using individual wires; therefore when wrapping and shaping though an item may look the same; they are not – they will have minor details that are different between hem. So it you want to own a unique item – wire wrapped jewellery is the way forward.
Each wire wrapped pendant takes anything between 1 hour and several days worth of work; dependant on the intricacies of the piece.
