On sale today is a beautiful Green Kyanite Crystal artfully wrapped in a tension forged sterling silver wire wrap. This is a gorgeous natural crystal that is a bright vibrant green that shimmers and flashes in the light. This long delicate crystal is made even more spectacular by the sparkling waves of sterling silver that securely grasp the stone and accentuate its brilliant color and crystalline shape.
Metaphysically, green kyanite is know as a "growth crystal" and is a potent aid in nurturing, both in family relationships or new business ventures. Green kyanite is wonderful for keeping a venture on course, a project on schedule, and life on track.
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.
