Xanadu Geode by magpie-poet Xanadu Geode by magpie-poet
Borrowing from :icondpbjewelry: style for inspiration in my battle with square wire.

I'm not sure on this. I like that the spirals kind of blend in, but I dont' know if it's a little too over the top.

I know the photo needs work. Those clear crystals are really nice, but evil to photograph, since they pick up the color of anything I place the piece against :p

Named after Coleridge's Kubla Khan because it reminded me of the 'pleasure dome with caves of ice' in the poem and it got stuck in my head while making this.

2 1/2" tall by 1 1/8"at its widest.

Other pieces available [link] or note me for this one, $86+shipping. This one will go up there when I get some rather more representative photos!

No, they are absolutely great!
The visually connect the wire frame with the stone and nearly look as if being part of the stone pattern from a bit farer away.

Oh yes, almost all of them are in theory. I just haven't done well with etsy, so don't post nearly as many as I make :)
