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:
Her Sanctuary 247 - Contest Prize - Multiple Views by Zorias

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.

Like so many of your other pieces of jewelry art, your stone choices and your wraps show how talented you are!

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 :)
