Piece # 167 "Charmed Silence"
A Zoria's Creation. Krista DeSelms ©2011
This is by far not the most unique design, I'm not even sure where I saw this kind of design first, but I thought I'd try it out and these circular designs are the only things I've ever been able to really create something nice with beads, I'm making these as a little less expensive design for those who'd like to have some of my work but can't afford some of my more complex pieces.
Amethyst bead wrapped in Argentium Sterling Silver.
Amethyst is the Birthstone for February and the accepted anniversary gemstone for the 6th year of marriage. Amethyst has been considered a semiprecious stone since an abundance of the crystal mineral was found in Brazil in the 19th century. Before that is was considered a precious stone. Amethyst is a quartz mineral and comes in various shades of purple. The natural occurrence of manganese in quartz gives Amethyst its purple hue.
ARGENTIUM® Sterling Silver is the highest quality of Sterling Silver available today and is highly tarnish resistant. Sterling Silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. Argentium is actually 93.5% silver with the remaining 6.5% a mixture of Copper and the element Germanium which gives it a higher tarnish resistance and less people are allergic to it than normal Sterling Silver.
