Today's focus...Birthstone pendants


Birthstone pendants..... I love making these. Each has it's own character they are one-of-a-kind and although you try to duplicate previous pendants the wire takes on a life of it's own.

Birthstones have been around since ancient times, and in those days were believed to possess some magical force that could protect the owner or wearer of the stone. These birthstones were traditionally linked to the Zodiac.
However, modern birthstones are linked to calendar months, and each month has its own unique birthstone, with its own fabled properties. Many people love to wear jewellery set with their birthstone, as the ancient meanings and associations with these stones still intrigue them.

Beautiful Pendants---I love free-form pieces of wire jewelry- no 2 are ever the same. They just seem to capture a mood and moment in time. These are beautiful-- keep up the wire sculpting, we need to see more!
