My name is Ahyssa
 

A couple years ago, I took a jewelry making class with my mom to learn how to make wire bracelets. That afternoon had a greater impact on my life than I could foresee. Rapidly, I fell in love with exploring different ways to make earrings, rings, necklaces, and accessorizing things like glass terrariums, sunglasses, you name it...Expressing creativity through wire-wrapping and knowing that I can create pieces that will bring positivity and good energy to the ones who wear them brings me joy and pride. Vibes In Stone holds a very special place in my heart. I am grateful to have a place where I can list my jewelry and just artistic creations in general...

If you have a comments, requests or questions, you may write me a message through the "CUSTOM VIBES" tab. Thank you for looking & stay tuned!

 

Wire Wrap
Perfection

Wire wrapping is one of the oldest techniques for making handmade jewelry. This technique is done with some jewelry wire and findings like gemstones, charms, sea shells, etc, to make components. Wire components are then connected to one another using mechanical techniques with no soldering or heating of the wire. Frequently, in this approach, a wire is bent into a loop or other decorative shape and then the wire is wrapped around itself to finish the wire component making that loop or decorative shape permanent. Because of this technique for wrapping wire around itself, this craft is called wire wrapping.

More about crystals

What are crystals?      Crystals are defined as solid objects with atoms organized in a repeating pattern known as crystal lattice. If a stone doesn't have one of the seven distinct lattice patterns, it is not a crystal.  Healing crystals may also be referred to as minerals, rocks, and gemstones with energetic properties.      What are minerals?      Minerals are substances that occur naturally and are formed geologically. Minerals have a highly ordered pattern, which is usually crystalline in the middle. Not all minerals are crystals.      What are rocks?      A rock can consist of a single or multiple minerals. Rocks occur naturally and do not have a specific physical composition.

What are gemstones?      A gemstone is a mineral or crystal that has been cut and polished.   Gemstone are then classified as either precious or semi-precious depending on the quality and rarity.         “Crystals help you tune in to your intuition”         Natural gemstones in jewelry still carry the same healing potential as crystals sold individually. The cool thing that happens when you purchase a piece of handmade jewelry with one or more gemstones in it, is you have beautiful wearable art that also impacts your body through healing properties. By cleansing the gemstones often you can retain the healing properties of the jewelry.

Quality
Art Transformed Into Jewlery

Wire is available is various shapes, such as round, square, half-round and patterns, such as flat and pre-twisted. It is also available in a variety of materials. Copper and brass wire are easy to shape and manipulate. Copper wire can be hammered quite thin. Brass wire is a little stiffer than copper, but it can be manipulated very easily. Sterling silver is soft enough to manipulate, but holds its shape well once it has been formed. Gold-filled wire is made by fusing a layer of 12-or 14-karat gold to a supporting material. Silver-filled wire is made in the same manner. The bond between the two materials is permanent.

About SpoonZ

The way I came up with the idea to wrap miniature spoons is a family story. Growing up in the Alps, I spent a lot of holidays visiting these 3 ladies who we called "the cousins". One was a painter, another was a teacher and the third devoted her life to children. The three of them have always encouraged me to be creative in many different ways. Two summers ago I went back to visit; we sat in their lovely garden where I showed them some of my jewelry creations.

My cousin then ran into the house with excitement because she had something to gift me she thought I would like to wrap. 

And well, you've guessed it; it was a tiny antique spoon! 

 

Two years later, here I am; in love with making unique SpoonZ necklaces and hoping that you will see one you would like!
