On sale today is a beautiful Natural Shark Tooth artfully wrapped in a tension forged sterling silver wire wrap. This is a gorgeous tooth that has amazing detail and color and is a perfect unisex pendant working perfectly for men or women. Plucked from the waters off Charleston South Carolina this is truly a unique and stunning piece. To top it all off it is breathtakingly encased in swirling waves of sparkling sterling silver resembling the curling seafoam from whence this tooth originated.
Metaphysically, shark teeth are used as a totem symbol that helps boost the self-confidence and self-trust of the wearer.
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.
