Necklace with crystal:
This necklace is hand crafted with a double terminated quartz point orbited by hammered sterling silver. It is part of the Yukonreddy Orbits line that is used to highlight and secure special stones and raw crystals in a fashion that lets the maximum amount of light in, and also protects it from impact. It is hung on an evergreen toned twisted stranded hemp cord with a spring ring clasp.The pendant is 4.4cm long and 1.6cm wide at the widest point. The cord is 50.1cm long. $69
This metal core cuff is commonly sized and is wrapped with artisan fibre created by Yukon-raised fibre artist, JQ. The focal is made with a special light catching bead to give it a Tolkienesque feel, with faceted crystal accents for subtle sparkle. The ends are wrapped with reclaimed leather for comfort, and the accent material is reclaimed from the one cushion from my old house that had a sticker on it that my child wanted to keep which caused her to slip the cushion into the boxes of toys that I hastily packed when we left the situation.The cuff can be reshaped a few times as the core is brass, but with all metals if you reshape it enough times it will become brittle.$95
Necklace with the viking knit:
This necklace features Ocean Jasper enrobed in sterling silver, hanging on a section of hand woven Viking knit wire. It is adjustable up to 51cm and the ribbon is polyester so it can be hand washed if it needs it, with faceted rondelles on the ends of the ribbon for both visual interest and ease of tying. The ends tie into a hand crafted twisted and soldered ring.The pendant is 6.5cm long and 2.2cm wide, and the viking knit section that it hangs on can be reshaped a few times if needed. As with all metals, too much bending back and forth it will get brittle. $120
