Sodalite gemstone-"From the Kings bloodline"-Regal handmade wire wrap weave pendant and necklace
I love colored and shinny rocks especially ones with flash...Sodalite carries the colors of blue, gray, and white...together they are very striking. On one of my last trips to the rock and gem show that was in my area this year, I purchased this flat, round Sodalite gemstone. Holding it towards the light you can see its little bits of sparkle within the stone.
When creating this pendant and necklace, I started with a basket weave flat base for its backside. Once the back weave was completed, I then moved on to the framing if the stone...I created a wire wrap weave frame that turned into a jump off point for me to be creative with its face and bail. After the pendant was completed, I created the wire wrapped Sodalite links to create the necklace.
Once the whole project was totally finished, I thought it looked "Royal" or "Regal", something someone from the medieval and Victorian era might have worn...you choose which...hence its name, "From the Kings bloodline".
Pendant measures approximately 2 1/2 inches in length, bail included in measurement, and 1 1/4 inches wide at its widest point.
the wire wrapped Sodalite link necklace is 24 inches in length.
