Blue goldstone – “Stellar light”

Goldstone is a manmade stone with differently coloured specks of cobalt and manganese suspended in the stone to create a sparkle effect.

This version uses blue goldstone – a red goldstone is just as common and has flecks of copper. Some people like to call it ‘starstone’ instead. I think I get it – the stone glitters like the night sky!

I wrapped this using sterling silver wire and nothing else as I wanted to leave the stone mostly unobstructed by wires and other crystals.

Materials needed:
– blue goldstone cabochon
– 0.80mm and 0.40mm sterling silver wire

Tools needed:
– jewellery pliers
– wire cutters
