For sale is a beautiful slice of polished Ammolite Shell artfully wrapped in a tension forged sterling silver wire wrap. This is a wonderful piece that flashes with a rainbow of colors. A slice of a fossilized shell, this is truly a unique material and the pictures do not do it justice. The play and flash of colors will make it stand out against any outfit. The vibrant colors are highlighted by the swirling waves of sterling silver which securely grasp the stone and really make it pop. A perfect selection for anyone with a love of fossils and history.
Metaphysically, ammolite helps to awaken your awareness of evolutionary shifts in consciousness, both in yourself and in the world in general. It can help convert negative energy into positive, deepens meditations, increases general health, instills stamina, relieves trauma, and improves your mood.
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.
