This pendant is something special. When I first held the Bloodstone, I noticed the cool smoothness of the stone. The deep green being the perfect background for speckles of red. I turned it every direction and knew the smooth cabochon would be stunning set horizontally with a Himalayan quartz as its crown. The trick would be how to show off this naturally shaped quartz and keep it secure. I knew the solution would present itself so I got started. The smooth blood stone was a bit slippery and begged for some weaving. This was not a problem as I love to weave wire. As I started to figure out how to set and secure the quartz, I suddenly figured out how to wrap the orb I have been thinking about for a year. In fear that this moment of clarity will swiftly disappear I put the pendant down and pick up the rutilated quartz sphere with great purpose. With an hour (maybe a bit more) the orb is secure. Feeling triumphant, I pick up this Bloodstone and Himalayan Quartz pendant and finish the design. May whoever wears this pendant experience the joy of clarity and the thrill of triumph.
