Up for sale is a beautiful Moonstone cabochon artfully wrapped in a tension forged sterling silver wire wrap. This stunning cab is indescribable and the pictures hardly do it justice. A milky transparency is amazingly overlaid with brilliant flashes of blue and gold chatoyancy which catch the eye and dazzle the senses. To top it off are the swirling waves of sparkling sterling silver which securely grasp the stone and truly accentuate its natural beauty. A supremely exceptional stone and it could be yours.
Metaphysically, moonstone is also known as the "traveler's stone" and is used for protection against the perils of travel and as a talisman of good fortune. Often connected with the moon, it cleanses negativity, brings calmness, and is known to stimulate confidence and composure.
My wire work is all done by me in a tension forging technique using a hammer and anvil. I have been using this technique for almost 17 years with great results. I call it tension forging because all that holds the piece securely in the wrap is the tension of the wire. It is a single piece of wire and there is no glue or solder added making it exceedingly organic while still remaining very secure.
Photos: I try to give a good idea of the piece that you are buying, so I always take two photos. The first photo is in natural light and the second photo is under LED lights. That way you have an example of what the piece looks like in multiple lighting situations. This is also why the two photos do not always match but it is always of the same piece of jewelry.
