Wirework combines form and function in basic ways; it's always been my favorite method for its ancient, classical origins.
Semi-precious gems: jasper, agate, opal, citrine, amethyst, tourmaline, onyx, druzy, quartz, serpentine, peridot, garnet, granite. Handmade jewelry, wrought wire; hammered, wrapped: bronze, copper, sterling silver, goldfilled. Native, tribal, earthy vibe.
