This natural untreated Sodalite pendant is a lovely soft blue, not too big, not too small and lovingly wrapped in .935 Argentium silver. The stone is wrapped first with a thicker heavier gauge wire, then secured in with a thinner and more delicate wire with bead accents, also of .935 Argentium Silver wire in a style I like to call the 'Serpentine' as the wire ends in a smooth serpent like embellishment at the top of the piece. this pendant comes complete as shown WITH an 18 inch "Wheat" style chain, with hand finished loop at the back and sturdy lobster claw clasp.
-->>PLEASE NOTE: If you'd like a longer, shorter or different style chain, please send me a message to inquire. I'd be happy to accommodate your needs! You may also browse other chain offerings in the "CHAINS" section of this shop.
The wire is formed around the stone using no heat, just my bare hands and a simple pair of pliers. Then The formed metal is hard-polished to flatten the round wire in strategic places to enhance and stylize the wrap design. Once that is done, the piece is washed several times to remove any compound left from the polishing wheel, and I begin to weave thinner wires to secure the piece, so that it is as sturdy as if it were set into a casting. Finally, the piece is tumble-washed and polished to a high shine.
This pendant measures approximately 1 1/2" from top to bottom, and 1/2" at widest point. Please scroll through the photos to see ruler measurements, and the piece in my hand to get full idea of the size.
Sweet Sodalite, known as a stone of logic, rationality, and efficiency. As it is linked to the Spiritual 5th Chakra (throat area) it is well known as the stone of eloquence, truth, learning, knowledge and is called the "Poet's Stone". It is useful for honesty of emotions and love. It has also been used to accentuate feelings of self confidence.
