Up for sale is a beautiful Grape Agate piece artfully wrapped in a sterling silver tension forged wire wrap. Grape agate is composed of small botryoidal chalcedony. Botryoidal means that round crystals have naturally formed together. This is a lovely stone that has a sparkling almost velvet looking surface. It is a delicate purple hue which combined with its conglomeration of small spheres truly makes it resemble a pile of tiny grapes. The unique shape and gentle color are highlighted by the swirling waves of sterling silver which securely grasp the stone and really make it pop.
Metaphysically, grape agate promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm protective properties encourage security and self-confidence.
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.
