On sale today is a beautiful Bowlerite slice artfully wrapped in a tension forged sterling silver wire wrap. It has a wonderful shimmer and shine and is a vivid pink and white sparkle color mixture. The dramatic color is highlighted by the swirling waves of sterling silver which securely grasp the stone and really make it pop.
I created all of the bowlerite pieces by breaking, cutting, and polishing old bowling balls. It is an interesting upcycle of something that most people simply throw away. I find that they make wonderful jewelry as they are exceptionally strong, lightweight, and they have the most spectacular range of shimmering colors. Perfect for anyone who loves bowling, upcycling, or just unique jewelry in general.
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.
