Bismuth Crystal And Silver Wire-wrapped Pendant
Jewelry - Bismuth Crystal In Sterling Silver-filled Wire
This gorgeous handcrafted pendant was made with a sparkling and prismatic bismuth crystal, wrapped in genuine Sterling silver-filled wire. This pendant, measures 55x33x21mm (2.2" x 1.3" x 0.8") and comes suspended on an adjustable braided black leather cord (18"-long silver chain is available as a substitution for the black leather cord, upon request) which, closes with a lobster-claw clasp. This is truly a one-of-a-kind piece, since each and every bismuth crystal is unique and it was wrapped to echo the dimensions and morphology of the crystal. What a conversation piece!
Our pendants are made to last! We wire-wrap all of our bismuth crystals to protect them from damage. Drilling weakens the structural integrity of the crystal & subjects it to shattering, while gluing can crack off, or shield areas of the crystal surface from exposure to the atmosphere, which is crucial to allowing the surface to oxidize in a natural way over time.
Bismuth is naturally a silvery-white color as a fresh crystal but acquires it's colorful, iridescent surface due to it's exposure to air and oxidation of it's surface. The spiral stair stepped structure of a bismuth crystal is the result of a higher growth rate around the outside edges than on the inside edges. The variations in the thickness of the oxide layer that forms on the surface of the crystal causes different wavelengths of light to interfere upon reflection, thus displaying a rainbow of colors. WOW!
Your pendant will arrive in a lovely gift box (shown, image #5) and shipped securely in a padded envelope with tracking from my studio to your chosen destination. Makes a great gift!
