Blue Chalcedony and Jade

Some of my wire work with Blue Chalcedony:

a gorgeous quartz stone made up of many different minerals. Considered a sacred stone by the Native American Indians, chalcedony nurtures and promotes brotherhood and good will. Absorbs negative energy and dissipates it. Harmonizes mind, body, and spirit.Instills generosity

Wire wrapped Jade: Known as the stone of wisdom and prosperity, I need wisdom and prosperity!!!

This is all done by a wire wrap technique in which you take a cabochon (flat backed stone) and create a "cage" by wire wrapping. It's fun, addictive, and hard on the fingers!

This is beautiful. I love Chalcedony. I didn't know that it dissipates negative energy. I should carry some in my pillow case!! Hope you're fingers are recovering well!

Stopped by from SITS.

Chalcedony is one of the 12 foundations of the New Jerusalem. Revelation 20:19-20. Read the whole chapter to get a picture of the splendor of that new city made by God!
