The Incredible World of Rocks
The use of stones in jewelry is neverending. Very commonly stones are used in silversmith or beading work, however, I am a huge fan of wire wrapping. I think wire wrapping impresses me because I have done it, and I know how hard it is on the hands. Not to mention the difficulty of keeping everything even and tightly wrapped.
HardCandyGems on etsy has some of the nicest wire wrapped pieces I have found. Her store features many labradorite pieces, and her wire wrapped rings are just astounding.
You can find her work at http://www.hardcandygems.etsy.com
