Aurora Memories Moonstone Pendant by Nambroth Aurora Memories Moonstone Pendant by Nambroth
This is a Moonstone carefully hand wrapped in Argentium sterling silver. I'm running out of frilly names to call these! Sometimes I am just tempted to call them "Really pretty moonstone #542" and such. XD

Moonstone is a fantastic stone that can appear milky at first, until you move it and the stone comes alive with colors flashing within. The effect is similar in appearance to opal fire. It is called chatoyancy/labradorescence, which is a fancy way of saying that the color 'flashes' or 'rolls' across the stone, like cat's-eye but far more vibrantly. It is a natural stone, and the effect is caused by refractive layers within the stone.

FAQ stuff, please read before asking:

- Yes! I do sell these! They are for sale here: [link]

-I hand wrap these pieces with nothing more than my fingers and some bitty pliers.
-I purchase the stones already cut and polished from rock and gem shows.
-My silver is purchased directly from a precious metals silver refinery.
-I use several different gauge and shaped wires in each piece.
-My methods are 100% self taught, unplanned, and haphazard and I do not plan on creating tutorials on how to make these. If you want to learn wire-wrapping there are already some good tutorials out there if you search on Google. Just please be respectful of the work and years I've invested in learning how to create my pendants and don't directly copy my work (I rely on these to pay my bills!).

Thanks for looking. :)

This is a truely beautiful piece, how long did it take you to learn the skills needed to make a piece this pretty? Certainly it was a lot of time and work to complete.

Thanks! I have been doing wire-wrapping for about .. goodness, 6-ish years now! I'd say at least three of those years were spent making terrible and countless mistakes while learning. XD
