Slumbering Forest Prehnite Pendant by Nambroth Slumbering Forest Prehnite Pendant by Nambroth
A really pretty Prehnite, hand wrapped in Argentium Sterling Silver. :)
I was very excited to find this prehnite, as it is very gemmy for its size.

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. :)

Thank you! The reason it's not on my site is that it already sold. I'm sorry!

I absolutely adore your work! Each pendant is so striking and unique. Have you ever considered using steel wires, for those of us who have allergies to silver and base metals?

I have, though I would need to purchase an entirely new set of tools and I haven't been able to find stainless steel in the type of wire shapes I like :/ Have you ever looked into Argentium Silver? Most folks with silver allergies aren't allergic to the silver itself, which is inert, but to the alloys in it. The Argentium uses a different alloy and usually does not cause a reaction in silver-allergic individuals.

The only one I can get to, currently, is in Hamburg, NY. It's a small show.
They have them nationwide, in the US.

I've bought one of your necklaces for my GF in Russia, but it turned out that I can't mail jewelery outside US :( Too bad, the necklaces you're making really are a piece of art...

Oh no! I am so sorry. You can mail jewelry to many countries but I don't know about Russia. The US has some weird restrictions in place that are old, but never got changed.... and jewelry can be considered part of 'money laundering', silly enough.

I saw this and first thought this precious stone was peridot not the stone you mentioned; then second I thought this was wrapped in white gold by the slight yellow in the photo, I stand corrected. I like how it is also the metalwork is set like a closed heart closing around the stone, very nice. :) :thumbsup:

Are large pieces of Prehnite not usually very gemmy? I admot I'm not at all familiar with the stone...

They tend to have a lot of Epidote inclusions, which are also cool but creates a different look.

out of curiousity, why don't you put the measurements of your pendants? I love your work, but I never have any real idea of the size of your jewellery! (Large, small??? I always wonder)

I love all things green, and this is just sublime! I recieved a moldavite pendant last Christmas, but really dislike the wire wrap job done on it, I am trying to work myself into re-making the pendant, this piece truly inspires me to get to work on it ;) (though honestly I don't have your skills lol, so it won't turn out near as lovely) Beautiful job...

I was looking and prices because I'm interested in getting one, but some of them are near 200 dollars! Is there a reason they are so expensive? Is it because of the materials themselves? And can there be bargaining/haggling? Or is it just one set price?
Reply
:iconnambroth:
Nambroth Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2011  Professional General Artist
The materials and time invested varies a great deal. Some of them that have a lot of silver and fine stones cost me a lot more to make! You will notice that some are much larger than others. I have made several this time around that are smaller and with less materials for folks on a budget, many under $40. My prices are set. :)

Aeversa Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks for the info! I did see some smaller one for less which was really nice to see, but the majority of the ones I saw all had labradorite as the stone. Is it possible to get a certain style of the smaller ones but with a different stone? Or are those set in place as well?
Reply
:iconnambroth:
Nambroth Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Professional General Artist
Possibly! What are you looking for? Generally, the more silver used, the higher the price gets.

Aeversa Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Well I really like that green stone I saw in your very recent deviations. But I've also been a very big fan of amethyst for a long time. Or quartz in general! And I understand that the use of more silver will make it more expensive :).
Reply
:iconnambroth:
Nambroth Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Professional General Artist
Ah I see! It would be very tough to find an amethyst, nice cut quartz, or prehnite that is large enough to wrap but keep it inexpensive.
Reply
:iconaeversa:
Aeversa Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Well I may be willing to go up a bit ya know for amethyst. But hmmm, I guess you had so many small labradorites for a reason! Lol. Are there any other stones you could suggest that are easily used in this kind of situation? I am a lover of most stone and have quite a collection myself so I'm up to suggestions if it means its a bit cheaper on my budget :)

:iconnambroth:
Nambroth Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Professional General Artist
Generally, semi-precious stones that can be cut into drilled bead shapes are going to be the cheapest for me to wrap. :)
