Learning to Weave Wire - A Healthy Apatite

Apatite is one of my most favorite stones, these have a beautiful deep electric blue color.  It's not commonly found in the jewelry world and is often misunderstood for being precious beryl, topaz or tourmaline and the word Apatite comes from the Greek word "apate", meaning "deceit" because it is so often confused as being something other than what it is.

It is known for it's positive powers to assist in achieving goals, it clears away confusion, apathy and negative thinking while stimulating the intellect to expand knowledge and truth.  It enhances creativity and flow of thought.  A beautiful stone to become familiar with.   I hope you enjoy the wire treatment I've put to it and I hope you look for them in my etsy store ;)

I think this is where I begin to see your style evolve from wrapping wire to weaving wire. Very Beautiful...you weave a very elegant style.

What and where is the Intergem show?

The Intergem show is actually something I would attend in Denver Colorado... I've since relocated to Florida and the show doesn't come into the small town in which I live. I think it runs every quarter... you can google it and find the schedule. It was great fun and I used to go at the Denver Merchandise Mart. Thanks again for your comment!
