    Having technical difficulties uploading the other photo and entering text. Lol
    This is the first time I wire wrapped and caged a crystal this small. It is Larvikite with hematite and gold wires.

    Bev – hadn’t heard of Larvikite before – had to look it up. Such a pretty stone and so wonderful with the hematite and gold. Looks so hard to do. It is a tiny treasure.

    Thanks, Beady! Sometimes my arthritis acts up so it’s not so easy to wrap tiny ones.

    I can imagine it is very hard to wrap a stone so small. The wire colors really enhance the darker nature of the stone. It is a ‘tiny treasure’ :)

    It is definitely tiny and a real treasure. Love the sparkle and flash in larvikite. Did you need to use a magnifying glass to see what you were doing?

    Thanks, LRC! No I didn’t use a magnifying glass. I think it’s because I use 2 different colored wires that makes it easier for me to see what I’m doing…and I was extra careful working on this one. My daughter, Kitty, makes it look so effortlessly when she wire wraps. It looks like she is sewing. I do a lot of hand sewing.
