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.
