Well, here we go again! I have somehow found the time to create another amateur batch of wraps, and apparently feel compelled to publicly display them too.
I will try to keep the comments to a minimum on this also.
P019 - Lavic freeform, with silver. Starting to wrap freeforms now. Some are challenging. This was tumbled, and then untouched. Please ignore the huge imperfections of the rock. Hehe.
P020 - Anniversary Agate, with silver / gold. Don't exactly know the name of this Agate. The freeform is very chubby like a big jelly bean. Hard to wrap, but it got done. My bail accents are starting to get very guady.
P021 - Lavic brechiated, with silver / gold. A very small and mistake (thin) cab, I tried to use anyway. Wife calls it the "cockroach with big eyes". I guess that is endeering. There is actually not a flaw on the outside of the rock. It is clear agate intermixed with the rock, and the camera angle that maks it looks like caverns or vugs in the rock.
P022 - Bacon Agate crest, in silver. The rock looks amazingly fractured, and it sort of is, but it doesn't come apart at all when cutting or grinding. A very nice type of stone to work with. I made about 10 mistakes on this one.
P023 - Colorado River rock of origin, I don't know what this is. It is blue-ish, but camera does not pick it up. A medium freeform stone, this has been the hardest one to date to actually get in the wire wrap.
P024 - Unkown el-cheepo rock, wrapped in silver with beads. I bought this from the teacher at the rock class where we learned a donut patter, for 5 dollars. The whole thing is unusual, and my wife rejects it outright. It is not even allowed to be seen next to my other attempts. Says it looks like a spider web. I guess it sort of does.
P025 - Amethystine done in solid silver. The rock is very dark brown in real life, and the facture cannot be seen. Gave this to my niece last night, and it is a small stone that I got the wrap perfect on. I like working with solid (harder) silver.
P026 - Unkown Colorado River green rock, in gold / silver. This was a tumble that came out almost exactly like this. I had it on the grinder for 5 minutes to make it a bit more symetrical. Green, like this olive green is almost nowhere around where I live. And I have never found another piece like it, in my 6 trips to the Colorado to pick up rocks. Rare.
Well, that is it for now. My sister's 50'ith was last night, and she got 9 wraps, and appeared to be happy with them. I was happy to have been able to create something(s) from nothing(s), in time for the occasion.
Thank you for stopping bye!
