small piece of outer space wrap
Small meteorite wrap. 1 1/2" long by 7/8" at its widest. Wrapped in bright silver and hematite wire.

Those patterns on the meteorite are called Widmanstatten lines. They are the result of the metal cooling over huge periods of time. I've read that the pattern is caused by nickel and iron based minerals cooling at a rate of *one* degree every *million* years. Scientists have dated the Gibeon meteorite to around 4 *billion* years old.

(It's gotten brutally hard to find pieces of gibeon meteorite, does anyone have tips for where to look?)

It's been so long since I've swung by I confused updates with entries, so I'll appoligize for duplicating if it ends up as inbox spam!

I'm not big on social media, but you'll still find me popping up more on fb @magpiesmiscellanyjewelry, tumblr @magpiesmiscellany, and 
magpies_miscellany on instagram than here on dA.

My etsy shop is still magpiesmiscellany.etsy.com. Likewise my (also in need of an update) blog is still magpiesmiscellany.wordpress.com

I haunt pinterest sort of like I haunt here, though I do pin a further assorted miscellany of stuff :) I'm @magpiesmisc over there.
Steampunk Ammonite on Cording
Always playing with ammonites :) Another slightly steampunked one on some interesting two tone brown cording I found. Felt like it added to the cabinet of curiosities effect. When I have to write in a few words my jewelry style on applications I always want to put wire wunderkammer...but I get enough odd looks already...

Since I keep vanishing, as much as I'm not big on the newer social media, you'll still find me popping up more on fb @magpiesmiscellanyjewelry, tumblr @magpiesmiscellany, and magpies_miscellany on instagram. I haunt pinterest sort of like I haunt here, but I'm @magpiesmisc over there.
Orthoceras Kraken
Orthoceras fossil, freshwater pearls, bass, coated copper.

My younger cousin wanted a kraken pendant for Christmas, so of course I had to try it out. And I was pretty pleased (I think she was too) but then I decided I wanted a bit more of a mix of the octopuses on ancient pottery, the early scientific illustrations of squids, and the more sensationalist engravings of giant squids attacking ships. With a nod to the cthulhu mythos of course :)

Sorry, just got this. I do in theory, it depends on if I feel I can execute what you want and if I can get my hands on the right gems :)
