Copper and Ebony 105 by Zorias Copper and Ebony 105 by Zorias
Piece # 105
A Zoria's Creation. Krista DeSelms ©2011

This is a gorgeous piece of Red (cherry) Tiger Eye that at certain angles looks really black except for the striking line of copper red that slices through it.

Cherry Tiger Eye in 20 gauge, square copper wire.

Tiger Eye is a type of quartz that is chatoyant from inclusions of crocidolite. It is lustrous yellow to brown. The name is from the appearance of the stone, banded browns and golden yellows. Tiger Eyes normally start out blue but with oxidization turns to the yellow and brown color that is more popularly known.

Red Tiger Eye, or Cherry Tiger Eye, is heat treated, either naturally or by man which changes a Gold Tiger Eye to a dark reddish hue. Heat treatment is generally rather undetectable.

Copper is pure metallic element that is malleable and has a warm brown tone. Some people believe that wearing Copper can help with the pain and stiffness of Arthritis, though it has not been scientifically proven.

Yes, I do custom work.

the scalloping along the sides gives a very elegant, interesting effect. The copper suits the stone perfectly.

Thank you :) I had the piece all set and had all the wires sticking around and couldn't figure out what to do with it and my boyfriend goes you should put all three wires at the top, so I did. I think it's one of my better pieces :)

that wrap on the top is nice! Does that have a name? I really dont know anything about jewelery so I dont know if certain wraps, like knots, have a name. Again nice piece.

Thank you very much! I've been wrapping over a year now and as far as I know there's no special names for the wraps, I know the top of each piece where the chain of a necklace would go through is called a bail, but that doesn't qualify the design of it so I'm not sure. Odd I never though about it lol

Lol I was really confused and then I checked out your gallery, you make some pretty cool things :) I think my favorite on there is the Catacombs Picture Frame.

I really like the softness of the copper wire's lines, rather than the typical sharp angles most wire wrappers use. It compliments the organic shape of this stone beautifully.

Thank you so much for the compliments! I like to give tumbled stones a little more freedom in their wraps just for that reason :)

Very pretty. I do like the effect you get wrapping the wire around and across. It always looks so lovely and controlled :D
