Marquise Moonstone Pendant by Nambroth Marquise Moonstone Pendant by Nambroth
This is a Moonstone carefully hand wrapped in Argentium sterling silver. A polite little marquise-cut moonstone cabochon with delicate blue, cyan, and amber colored flashes of color.

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. :)

I received one of these last Christmas and I love it so much! I always try to find excuses to wear it, it's the best jewelry I own.

I wish I could afford this piece. I love it!!!! How much would this be selling for? Just curious because I'm poor. A recent college graduate does not make much in the way of $, especially in this economy. :P
