Silent Song Moonstone by Nambroth Silent Song Moonstone by Nambroth
This is a moonstone carefully hand wrapped in Argentium sterling silver.

Moonstone is an amazing stone that can appear milky or white 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 a natural stone, and the effect is caused by refractive layers within the stone. It cannot be simulated or dyed to look that way!

FAQ stuff, please read before asking:

- Yes! I do sell these! They are for sale on my personal site: [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 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.</B>

Thanks for looking. :)

That is so my style, I love scrollwork and spirals. I had a man at a fair tell me that I covered up too much of the stone. In turn, I had to tell him that I had repaired quite a few pieces like his due to the flimsy gauge wire that he was using :-(

Oh my word, this is truly heavenly. I wish I could afford such things.

Lovely, I like how your stones are smooth and rounded, it makes them feel more organic, instead of having many facet cuts, which make such stones seem so… lets say artificial
