Seraphinite & Crystal Pendant


About this design:

I'm in love with wire again....I thought that silver wire would help bring out the silvery wisps of color in the stone and I just happened to have those tiny, tiny Swarovski crystals in the right shade of green!

Components:

Seraphinite Cab, Swarovski Crystals, Silver Fill Wire ~ 20g & 24g.

    Now that’s what I call a nice rock! You’re right abou the silver bringing out the streaks in the stone.The crystals are a lovely compliment. I wonder if this stone it’s related to Kyanite?
    ps..do you use half hard wire,when you do this work??

    Wow! Another absolutely wonderfully beautiful pendant! Great work Elaine! I love that seraphinite, it’s amazing! I love it! :D

    Nancy-I think seraphinite is related to chlorite, which also has the layers and shimmer that kyanite has. Kyanite is related to andalusite and sillimanite.

    Thank you, ladies! :-D

    Good information about these stones, Olive Penguin!

    I use half hard wire, I find it works that best for me so far…although I haven’t used all of the varieties yet!
