Scientifically, bismuth is actually an element on the periodic table specifically number 83. However, the bismuth pictured here and most all bismuth you will come across are not natural but grown in a laboratory.
Metaphysically, bismuth is a great stone to help you focus on a task and is also helpful in aiding in cohesion of a group of people so that they will work together harmoniously. It can stop you from becoming overwhelmed by your responsibilities while also boosting your energy to take on said tasks. Finally, it helps with feelings of loneliness and is useful in adapting to change.
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.
