New Wire Wrapped Jewelry – The Snob Blog

Unless I have a specific Lapidary Project, things are pretty random regarding what rocks, Mnerals, or Fossils I make jewelry from. Heres some new things you’ve not seen.

Crinoid’s are interesting animals; many times people think they are some prehistoric Plant. Crinoids are marine animals that make up the class Crinoidea, one of the classes of the phylum Echinodermata, which also includes the starfish, brittle stars, sea urchins and sea cucumbers. Sea Lilies are still around today, and are related to Crinoids from the Devonian Period.

How do I know you’ve not seen this jewelry? It involved my camera not working, Logically if my camera is broken, I cannot take jewelry pictures. It’s reasonable to presume that by not having any pictures of some new work, it would be impossible for you to see it.

A different camera was the ticket to taking some new pictures. This array of jewelry pictures shows what I go through. I see something that attracts me; it can be any stone at any time. In the middle of the night (often) an inspiration overtakes my brain, and I pop out of bed to make a new piece of jewelry. Here are a few recent art pieces.

Sometimes my wife, Bonnie, goes searching around our buckets, boxes, and bins. She often finds amazing things from back in the day. If she finds something rare and amazing, she’ll bring it into my shop. “Bonnie Treasures” are often cut and polished right away.
