You may notice that we use spirals for many of our wire wrap pieces. The spirals represent the curling tendrils on grape vines growing in vineyards that surround our home.
The coins in the third picture are a 2016 US Lincoln Head penny we used as a size gag. The larger lower coin is a 1960 Halfpenny (Ha'penny). The third very small coin is a Jewish Mite from between 103-76 BC. The later two are more for the history and interest than as size gags.
There is another reason why we added the older coins. The stones we use are beyond ancient, having been formed when the earth was formed. Working with rocks that are millions of years old is awe inspiring. We both feel the same way when we hold a coin from ancient Israel, a coin made famous in the story of the widow's donation. Does this make us romantics? Unabashedly. We are jewelry designers - romance is all a part of that art form.
Lapis Lazuli releases stress and brings peace and tranquility. It can enhance honesty, compassion and morality. It inspires confidence, self-expression, clarity of thought, creativity and objectivity.
