Inspired by the Celtic heart


About this design:

Oh I'm so attached to these Golden quartz rough points! This design came from the heart. Once again it's one of those that I don't realize is happening, my hands do the work and it just magically makes sense! This is definitely something I imagine myself wearing in a past life along with a cloak and a quiver and bow and arrows and a nice long dress! ( think lord of the rings style! ) And yes, I shall definitely be wearing this one in this life too! let me know your thoughts.

Components:

5 Golden quartz rough points, varying sizes. (The middles one is my favorite with its dark coloring.) 16 gauge copper wire ( for the frame ) 20 gauge copper wire ( for the wire wrapping and jump rings) 2 gold crimps suede/leather flat cord.

    Beautifully colored quartz! I can totally see the avenging archer in the long dress with her quiver and bow wearing this as a talisman. Very simple and medieval-ish style that lets the quartz take center stage.

    I’d sew the dress and cloak and wear it all to a Ren faire. I’m sure you would turn a few heads. Great job!

    Gorgeous! I’m Irish, so I tend to appreciate anything inspired by Celtic lore,etc. I agree that it’d look awesome at a Ren faire! <3. Reminds me of something huntress Snow (White) would wear on Once Upon a Time, in the scenes where she's on the run from the Evil Queen, before she has Emma. Just beautiful, great work!

    Kerry..you recently inspired me to use Kyanite with Tiger Eye in a simple linnear earring. I love the combination of the two.Thank you for that inspiration.
