Bismuth crystal 1 and 2

About this design:

These are my almost famous wire wrapped Bismuth crystals, the 1st is in gold filled wire and the 2nd is sterling.. Every time I take some of these to a show I sell them, I usually only make 1 or 2 for shows, because of the cost of precious metal. The crystals are so cool, they are geometric shapes and have colors of the rainbow.. I buy my crystals from my sister, they are gem dealers.


Bismuth crystals, sterling silver and gold filled.

    Everyone else as used up the adjectives! But, they bear repeating for both the bismuth and your wirework. Gorgeous…exquisite…stunning…beautiful…lovely.
    I can see why they sell out at every show.

    I went and looked up some information on Bismuth crystals. You can make them at home on the kitchen stove out of the same stuff that they use to make Pepto Pinkstuff. Whoda Thunkit!!!!
