Smoky quartz crystals are one of my favourite for their protective and grounding properties and I wear one every day.  I can often drift off with my day dreams and need to stay focussed! Grounding and solid, Smokey quartz brings you to earth and anchors your energy to focus and achieve your hearts desires. A powerful protective crystal she will support you in finding your place and belonging. 

 
These delightful crystals are a delightful combination of delicate and eye-catching. You can confidently wear this unique gem every day, dressing her up or down. 
 
Each pendant comes on a dainty copper chain with a copper toggle clasp, and I can seal the copper if you have any concerns about possible reactions from the copper with your skin.
 
This necklace is currently made to order as I wait on the gemstones to arrive! I cannot wait. I had so much interest in this one necklace, that I wanted to make more available. Each of the stones have varying levels of translucence and shades of smokiness, so you can know that your necklace will be one of a kind! The gemstone has been set in a very thin copper band to ensure the light passes through and catches the multifaceted cut of the stone. 
 
I have set this necklace through the process of electroforming. I begin by preparing the crystal and creating the bail for the necklace, which the chain will pass through. Once I am happy with the setting, I paint a conductive paint onto the parts of the crystal I need the copper to plate onto. The next step is protecting the rest of the crystal with a temporary sealant. Once I have completed these steps, I’m finally ready to put the crystal into my electroforming solution, and use electricity to move copper from one place to another. This process can take anywhere from 24-48 hours, and requires constant monitoring to ensure the process is smooth, and does not happen too quickly, as this affects the quality of the plating. Once the piece is ready, I clean it, remove any sealant from the crystal and finally, sand and polish the copper before adding a chain to finish the necklace. 
 
It’s quite a process from beginning with a raw crystal, to the finished result and one that I absolutely love. I hope that you treasure your new piece of jewellery for a long time to come.
