The obsidian shard was wrapped with tarnish resistant silver plated copper wire. It is a junky piece of jewellery; though would no doubt compliment someone’s evening attire or even day time style really well.
This intricat pendant has at the core an orange-red piece of coral. The wrapping encapsulates the coral organically. The wire used is tarnish resistant silver plated copper wire.

All of my wire wrapped pieces are unique; individual; organically created; therefore you will never see anyne wearing the same jewellery as you. Isn’t that amazing?! As unique as you are.

These beautiful pendants are recycling botryolite gem stones into individual pieces. All pendants are wire wrapped by hand using tarnish resistant silver plated copper wire; or tarnish resistant red copper wire. Some designs are simple; just the bortyolite and wire but some are incorporating other gem stones; beads or sea glass.
Below is the collection incorporating these pendants:
The stone itself was the inspiration for this piece; the webbing and detail allows for the stone to be center stage. It is bold and delicate at the same time.
The design was a fluent inspirational work; often when I pick up a stone it is impossible to know what the end piece will look like. it may mean that it will start off as a simple design and it evolves along the way. Sometimes I create something then just to cut it all up and start again. Often something that starts off as simple; requires additional twists and turns for the final piece to emerge.
Wire wrapping makes each piece individual; I do not use templates to create the pieces; they evolve organically through the process of wrapping. Each piece takes a number of hours to complete; whilst each wrap is done by hand..
Lapis lazuli has always been a precious commodity. In the time of Leonardo DaVinci; Michelangelo and decades previous the color blue was obtained by crushing the stone and turning it into a vibrant color. If you were able to have blue in your painting back in those days it meant you were rich. Or as one musician said at one point “rich beyond your wildest dreams”.
The elegance of this pendant reminds me of those days long gone; when elegance was the word of the day; you can buy it on Folksy.
This delicate pendant was conceived from the desire of incorporating precious metals into my wire wrapping.
The silver wire is .99 pure. in total there are 6 g of silver wire incorporated in the design. The stone itself is also a semi precious stone – jade. A beautiful stone which plays in hues of light green and blue green veins.
The delicate features of the webbing would make it a perfect compliment to an evening attire; would go perfectly with that delicate “black number” that all women have in their wardrobe. Of course as the design is avant garde; boho chic – it can compliment your smart casual style too.

This intricate pendant is made from tarnish resistant silver plated copper wire.
The stone is a labradorite gem stone playing in hues of green blue and grey.
The labradorite gem stone is 2.5 cm; whilst the full pendant is 7 cm in height.
The elegant pendant would work perfectly as part of an evening attire; though given its classical look – can also match any elegant office look.
Any of my pieces can be worn both as part of a relaxed day time as well as a more formal ensemble.
(A pendant of this dimension and intricacy take several hours to complete; the stone is recycled from another chain go labradorites; and may have minor imperfections; the design evolved organically as I tried to encapsulate the stone; therefore this pendant is unique and will not be able to be reproduced in the same manner; as the stone will be different and the wrapping will also differ. If you wish to own it; you can be sure that it will be one of a kind)

**A NOTE: Wire wrapping is a genre of jewelry which requires pliable wire to be shaped into each piece. As a piece progresses, the wire hardens and it will retain it’s shape, however if you try to bend it or it gets squished, it will bend. Do not place your wire wrapped jewelry in a purse or pocket. :)
**Note: though all silver plated pieces are made from tarnish resistant wire; it may age; as most metals do. Mild soap and water shouldn’t damage the finish, however I do recommend removing your jewelry before showering or bathing; using household cleaners, chemicals, or essential oils; doing manual jobs like gardening or washing dishes; and applying lotions. Do not use jewelry cleaners on this jewelry. Sometimes the plating can wear off with excessive use – therefore I recommend not wearing the pieces every day. Rotating your beautiful jewelry pieces creates a new look for you; and changes your mood for that day.
