I do however, have some new pieces to show you. We have been ordering gemstones from Superior Agates. She has some really love stones and if you buy from her via facebook, then they are cheaper than if you go to her studio. I have purchased some beauties.
The one I want to show you first is a "Butterfly Jasper" It has great detail in the stone and Leia, who does most of the pendant wire wrapping did this one for me for my mother's day gift. I absolutely treasure it. The stone itself is gorgeous. I will show it to you the way it is and was originally done, but also say that Leia is going to make just a small change to it and I think it will be even more beautiful. It is, of course beautiful the way it is, but she wants to tweek it just a little bit. See what you think!
The tiny tweeking that Leia is going to do is to the large swirl on the bottom left to more closely resemble the swirl at the top right. I think this will only add to the beauty although I am totally in love with this pendant. I wear it often and enjoy it loads. She has used a non-tarnish german silver wire along with a pink non-tarnish silver wire. The pink wire picks up on the pink from the stone and adds a dimension to it in my opinion. Either way, it is a beautiful stone and I will enjoy this piece for years to come.
The next piece I want to show you is also in the, let's say as above a bit unfinished stage. We decided to tweek it a bit as well. The weave on the stone is going to be reduced in order for more of the stone to show. It is such a beautiful piece of quartz, that we don't want the silver to take away from the beauty but to add to its beauty. See what I mean.
