Garnet & Sterling Silver Wire Wrapped Cross Pendant ~ January Birthstone
Lovely dark red Natural Garnets and Sterling Silver wire make up this beautiful hand wire wrapped cross pendant.
Also known as "Arizona Ruby" and "Cinnamon Stone" because of it's deep burgundy colour, garnets are a high energy stone.
I have wire wrapped this Cross pendant by hand using sterling silver jewelry wire and genuine garnet gemstones. I finished the ends of the Cross with Celtic Triskelions or Fleur De Lis, and hung the finished pendant from a dainty 18 inch (45 cm) sterling silver chain.
The pendant itself is larger, being approximately 2 inches long and a little less in width.
Garnet is a protective energy stone which is especially known for protection from evil, during travel, nightmares, and from wounds. Garnet is considered a stone that helps one realize and enjoy the pleasures of earthly incarnation.This includes enhancing sensuality, sexuality, and intimacy in a balanced fashion. As such, garnet is a stone of love and passion. This pendant would make a wonderful Valentine's Day or Birthday gift.
