Moss quartz

About this design:

I love bold pieces. And I love green. I balled the ends of some fine silver wire with a torch and wanted to use them. The frosted aventurine beads add a soft touch.


Moss quartz, frosted aventurine, green kyanite sticks, fine silver and sterling silver

    April B – You have to use fine silver wire (not sterling). 20-gauge works better than 16, which I used. You hold the wire (with pliers) in the flame of a small butane torch (the kind for creme brule’). When it gets hot enough, it starts to “ball up”. Then quench in a bowl of water.
