Pillow or Purse Charms - Wire-wrapped Gemstones #2
Regular priceSale price
This listing is for just one of our gemstone charms, the black onyx. The other three of the four selections - an oval black agate, a natural Howlite, and an oblong black agate - are listed separately under PILLOW CHARMS - WIRE-WRAPPED GEMSTONES #1
While this handmade, wire-wrapped gemstone charm was originally designed to enhance our pillows, we found that it looks equally great on a larger handbag as well, providing it has the necessary length in which to hang, since this measures approximately 6.5"
Both a short length of ball chain and a pillow clip are included in the price to give you the option of being able to hang the wire-wrapped gemstone from either a pillow or purse - or get creative and hang it from something else!
The components of the black onyx are wire-wrapped, but with black wire sans any flourish (all of the jump rings are hand-wrapped).
A lot of people believe that gemstones have spiritual meaning and specific healing powers. I am among those people and have therefore included cards that describe the meaning of the gemstone you select. These cards are illustrated in one of the photographs included here.
What is wire wrapping? It's is one of the oldest techniques for making handmade jewelry that involves the skillful shaping of wire to make and attach components. The additional creative "sculpting" of the wire is often combined as an element of design Because of this technique for wrapping wire around itself, the craft is called wire wrapping.
