WIRE WRAPS, BEADS, & JEWELRY
These frames of gems and jewelry are all the original posting. Call for availability but I left them here to admire the Opalized woods.
Virgin Valley Opal in Wood Matrix Beads and Pendants. Bezel set and wire wrapped Virgin Valley Opals and some inexpensive Andamooka Matrix beads.
Most of the wood and opal beads were sawed off longer pieces; some of which are still for sale. Those drilled holes were all treated to insure no existing fractures could compromise the stones strength. I include a linen cord with the pendants or a silver chain for $10 extra. At present I don't create with pure gold. 7 of the beads have been sold and over half the set opals too.
The next top corner piece is Sterling Silver with a super gem conk bark center stone with a cornerupine garnet, a boulder opal, and a fire opal side stones. It's my necklace that Leah made for me and is worn daily-NFS. Cut off the end of a stone that made the cover of Rock and Gem October 1999.
$30 Sterling Silver and 14 kt Gold Filled genuine gemstone wraps with a linen cord.
2012 selection of $25 dollar wraps.
$20 dollar wraps above the typical necklace cord and $15 dollar wraps below the cord.
I have these $5 dollar below the line and $10 dollar above the line wraps. Earrings are American made mostly, opals are lab triplets.
Swordfish Mining made our good reputation as prospectors & miners offering a miner direct source of loose stones and cutting rough. I'm now offering opal mining claims while marketing on the Internet and in person.
