Steampunk Bismuth Swarovski Crystal And Kyanite Pendant In Bronze Stmbsm7
Jewelry - Bismuth Crystal, Kyanite, Swarovski Crystal, Recycled Brass Watch Parts And Bronze Enameled Wire
This gorgeous handcrafted pendant was made with a shiny, sparkling bismuth crystal, wrapped in bronze enameled copper wire and features recycled vintage brass watch parts with a genuine Swarovski crystal and gemmy, spherical kyanite bead. This pendant, measures 43x33x15mm (1.7" x 1.3" x 0.6") and comes suspended on an 18"-long antique bronze chain which, closes with a lobster-claw clasp (18"-long brown leather cord is available as a substitute for the chain, upon request). 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 ship securely in a padded envelope with tracking direct from my studio to your chosen destination. Makes a great gift!
