wire wrapped amethyst pendant
A lovely Amethyst pendant, unique unusual trapaiche Amethyst, lovingly wrapped in antique bronze colour wire with lavender Opal accent.
The amethyst pendant measures just over 4.5 cm (1.75 inches) long including the bail. I have used a lovely lavender Opal as an accent bead. The wire has a copper core, a silver plating and then has an antique bronze colour coating. Nickel and lead free. This unique stone has lovely soft purple tones, from pale lavender to darker purple with some patches of clear colour. It has natural markings and patterns with needle-like inclusions in the stone – this is not your usual amethyst. Each pendant will be different due to the organic nature of the gemstone. To make a frame for the stone, I have used a wire netting technique based on the ancient art of couching – when pearls and gems were handstitched into gowns. The pendant bail is large enough to accommodate a chain, cord or ribbon – whatever you choose. I have added a soft cord in a light bronze colour and added a handmade clasp. The cord, including clasp, has a total length of approx 60cm (24 inches).
Amethyst has been used for centuries in jewellery and in crystal healing. It is a birthstone for February It is a calming and soothing stone, said to ease stress and remove negative thoughts. Amethyst is also a gem of the Violet Flame.
This is not your usual Amethyst, it is Trapaiche Amethyst, a rare and unusual form of this gemstone.
Lavender Opal has a soft lavender colour and is also linked to the Violet Flame, it is associated with the heart, third eye and crown chakras.
