Glacial Fire Moonstone Pendant by Nambroth Glacial Fire Moonstone Pendant by Nambroth
This is a Moonstone carefully hand wrapped in Argentium sterling silver. This pendant is really alive with flashes of intense sky blue and cyan! It's semi-crystalline in appearance and is really ethereal looking.

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. :)

Wow these are beautiful. I thought I would try wire wrapping but I find there is zero good tutorials online anywhere. It is far above me to try and learn on my own :) My last ditch effort is a few books I bought...hope they help. I so badly want to do this sort of jewelry work.

That stone is really amazing. It looks like a scratched ice surface and something glowing underneath it. I guess that's where the name "Glacial Fire" came from? Also those silver swirls you did are beautiful.

This is gorgeous. I love moonstone! I've been looking for someone who does pretty moonstone jewelry.. and I am allergic to most metals so the sterling silver is a plus! If I have any money laying around unaccounted for anytime soon I will most assuredly be purchasing one of your lovely pendants!

something is very striking about the cris-cross pattern set in all those flowing curves. It dose indeed remind me of a wind swept glacier.

I love that you're able to again create jewellery, Jennifer! I've been enjoying my moonstone from you ever since I've received it and I hope to either expand my collection of your jewellery and/or share your talents with others as gifts. Keep up the marvelous work; I hope the gem and metal gods continue smiling down upon you!
