Dispelling Quartz


About this design:

This one is named for it's use.
I have carried this Large rough cut Quartz in my pocket or handbag because I kept getting painful electric shocks from my Husband and his car and pretty much anything metal.
It was recommended that I use quartz to dispel this static electricity and so far it has worked!
So I decided I wanted to do something special with it so that I could wear it rather than it being hidden away in my pocket and this is what I came up with.

Components:

Large Quartz stone, 20 gauge copper gunmetal wire for the chain, 26 gauge copper gunmetal wire for the wire wrapping, feathers.

    Another lovely design using feathers! I love the ‘line’ of this necklace (if that makes any sense) and you way of cradling the crystal. Thank you for the tip about dispelling the static electricity. We sure could use that around here.

    Now that’s cool. I didn’t know that quartz had that property.
