Etrizomp ni Kelted ( the Celtic tribes are gathering )


About this design:

I have been one very busy bee today! I was listening to a band called Omnia,which do a lot of tribal, Celtic, pagan songs and as some of you will know, I am very much into my Celtic heritage, and most of my work contains some sort of spiral work! I was listening to a tribal war song when I made this, and picked up my hammer ( not in a violent way of course! ) and started swirling and hammering metal. I thought of the blue war paint 'woad' that the Celt's would wear in battle, so picked out some blue turquoise howlite and Chinese turquoise. Once the bracelet was complete, it just kept coming! I needed a necklace...then I needed earrings!

Components:

Large oval Turquoise dyed howlite stones 16 gauge silver wire Chinese turquoise chips silver jump rings 20 gauge silver wire antique silver lobster clasps
