Her Sanctuary 250 - Contest Prize by Zorias Her Sanctuary 250 - Contest Prize by Zorias
Piece # 250 "Her Sanctuary"
A Zoria's Creation. Krista DeSelms © 2013

First off, I’m so sorry for the quality of the picture, but this was taken on my iPhone :p Anyway, this piece was so fun to create, and photograph. You all know me, normally the photographing part is hell, but the piece is so gorgeous. I also had a blast naming the piece, all I could think of was this wonderful safe place, centered around a gorgeous tree. So here is the final prize for this year’s giveaway. I wish you all luck in winning it!

By request here are multiple views of this piece:


Sage Amethyst wrapped in round Argentium Sterling Silver wire.

Sage Amethyst also goes by the name Denio Denditic Agate, though it is neither Amethyst, nor Agate. It is a beautifully purple colored Chalcedony which has no banding in it as Agate and Amethyst have. It does have intriguing dendritic patterns; these patterns are made up of the element manganese that plumes in beautiful designs. Sage Amethyst is mostly minded out of Nevada in the USA.

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.

Zoria's is proudly registered as an Aregentium user.

ARGENTIUM® is a registered trademark of Argentium International Limited.

Yes, I do custom work.

That is such a curious looking stone, it's as if there is a small tree inside or something. O: Your wire wrapping is flawless.

Thank you so much, I do pride my work on the stones used, but to be fair, I only picked this stone to go in the vote, my fans picked the stone for the wrap :D Which just goes to show how great of taste they have! Thank you for the compliments :)
