Amethyst Geode & Sterling Silver Necklace, Handmade Boho WireWrap

Details

Here is a polished-looking, dressier take on crystal druzy geode jewelry. This is an end slice, so the back is closed and, as part of the natural matrix surrounding any geode, the smooth-polished backside reveals some base material - in this case quartz, which is commonly found with chalcedony or cryptocrystalline gems such as amethyst. This specimen, however, was evidently very pale in its natural state; the quartz backside shows some traces of dye in its fissures. It's not uncommon to enhance a gem's color - either by dying, heating, or saturation in waxes or other stabilizing agents. The effect in this piece is quite lovely, subtle and enriching.

The gem is 1-3/8" wide, 3/8" thick, and 1-1/2" high plus 1/2" of the handmade sterling silver bale. The sterling chain, end-to-end, is 20-1/2" long, including the handmade sterling clasp hook & eye. The clasp's shepherd-style hook is 1" long by 1/4" across at the curve; the eye is 1-1/8" long, with the loop's outside diameter being 3/8". The chain is manufactured, with each side having eight fire-polished Czech glass faceted stations - four of each size, 7x8mm and 5x7mm - wire-wrapped in by me.

All wire-wrapped elements were made by me in my home studio, and all of my silverwork is solid sterling; not ever "sterling filled" - which is seen a lot these days, but is actually a kind of heavy plating and is only 5% of the substance. My silverwork will always be solid sterling, 97.5% fine silver, throughout.

Materials Used

Quartzy Amethyst Geode, dyed; Czech Fire-Polished Glass, Faceted; Solid Sterling Silver.

More Info

This comes gift-wrapped in a brown kraft box bearing my brand label, with cotton box filler and designer tissue imprinted with pen-and-ink dragonfly images, and black raffia-style glossy ribbon. The ribbon will be loosely tied, so that you may inspect your purchase before presenting as a gift.

One-of-a-kind; this piece was handmade by me in my home studio, here in the Yolla Bolly Wilderness area, in the east-facing foothills of the Mendocino mountains in northern California.

I take deep pride in my work; each piece is infused with its own personality by the time I've finished it, even if it bears some similarity to another I've made earlier. Because these creations have life for me, I will gladly repair anything untoward that may happen to it in the normal course of wearing. Just email me at mineralandmetal@rtr.net, and let me know of any problems which I'd be most eager to fix. I want you to enjoy your wearable art I've made, and to gift it with pride.

All required sales taxes are paid by me, they are included in the purchase price; the price you see, plus applicable shipping, is all that you'll pay at checkout.

.And if you're going to be in either Tehama or Shasta county, contact me and we can arrange to meet with hand-delivery and, if it’s not a special trip for me, I’ll reduce your price by the amount of shipping (which is automatically computed by the website).
