Jewellery Update!

For my birthday, my partner and fellow artist Ryan Kalem gifted me with an electroforming kit to jump start my jewellery making which I had put on the back burner. I haven't yet figured out all the kinks and introsyncrases of this process, but having it definitely has put a fire under my tail for now. I finally casted and finished a long awaited bronze Diosa Luna pendant for an past art professor, and wire wrapped a piece of blue Kyanite for an art colleague.

I love working with crystals in my practice and personally for meditation.

An excellent Third-Eye Chakra stone, Blue Kyanite can pull very high vibrations in through this chakra to be processed as messages from other realms. It can transfer a high vibration, allowing for an opening of psychic abilities, especially during meditation. Blue Kyanite can also be used to promote lucid dreaming and astral travel.

Kyanite transmits and amplifies high-frequency energies, making it a great stone for attunements and meditation. Kyanite brings a calming, tranquilizing energy to the body. Kyanite clears and calms you in preparation for meditation, and assists in receiving intuitive and psychic thoughts, as well as dream recall. - Information from www.healingcrystals.com

I did a few different patinas on the bronze pendant but the metal reacts really well to ammonia, and that patina tends to stay even when adding a secondary patina on top. I like to experiment and mix patinas to et new and exiting colours. So far I've found that iron has the widest ranging colour shifts.
