Flawless Flow 182 by Zorias Flawless Flow 182 by Zorias
Piece # 182 "Flawless Flow"
A Zoria's Creation. Krista DeSelms ©2011

So I've had this cab lying around for a few months and after wrapping *DPBJewelry's gorgeous pieces of it I decided to wrap this one too. It's not as pure as the other ones, but I think the dark brown on the sides really give it some great character :) There's a lot of wire on there, though I think I got the flow and pazaz the rock has put into the wrap as well :)

Chrysocolla in round Argentium Sterling Silver.

Chrysocolla is found all over the world. This is because as a carbonate copper-bearing mixture of other minerals it can be mined wherever large deposits of copper are. Pure Chrysocolla isn’t hard enough to be cut and polished into cabochons or beads but luckily it’s found all over mixed with Quartz and other minerals that make it hard enough to do so. It is often mistaken for stones such as Turquoise, Malachite and Azurite. This is because Chrysocolla’s mixture often includes one or many of these stones. The outcome of this is a coloring that varies from deep rich blues and greens with browns and other cool colors in its blend. This stone was worn almost everywhere by the Egyptian princess Cleopatra because of its believed ability to turn violent feelings into sensitivity. Although Chrysocolla is mined in many places gem quality pieces of it are still highly valued and rarely found.

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% silver with the remaining 7% 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.

Yes, I do custom work.
