Anyone wrap stones here?
What are your favorite stones to wrap?
Things you're working on?
Here's a strip of Kyanite with a Peridot bead.
Without trying to be insulting, that looks bloody awful. Try using a nice polished stone and get the wrapping neater.
I was producing better stuff out of a tumbler when I was 12 and that was over 40 years ago.
not OP. Stone wrapping is basically for non-commercial looking jewelry, and for crystal power believers.
You've put too many bends in your wire, less is more unless you're doing swirls and stuff.
Learn to do it with twine or upholstery thread instead of ugly ass wire. Market it to crystalplebs by saying that the metal interferes with the crystal's vibrations. It'll look better and you'll make a killing.
mean age of a /diy/ user is probably around 40, and most have a background in n honest-to-god craft like welding, carpentry, beeing a dad or other stuff that makes your hands big as plates and your grip vice-like.
(btw. I aspire to beeing like you guys)
These are no hands made for wire twisting.
It's a cool thing but you would probably be beter off on /fa/ or smth.
I can post more of my shit later if anybody gives a fuck.
Gonna post sum wire porn unless anyone wants to see more of my work.
I can appreciate that some of these are actually very beautiful, but I've never found myself with so little to do that I just twisted wire together for the sake of twisting wire together. Making art implies that you did it yourself (at least, it used to), but I wouldn't call making art "DIY."
the magnetic/electrical effects of quartz are well documented. Never seen a watch with the word quartz on it? You think it's only quartz that has these properties, or do you think that simply because quartz is so common?
>Chemically, quartz is a compound called silicon dioxide. Many materials can be formed into plates that will resonate. However, quartz is also a piezoelectric material: that is, when a quartz crystal is subject to mechanical stress, such as bending, it accumulates electrical charge across some planes. In a reverse effect, if charges are placed across the crystal plane, quartz crystals will bend. Since quartz can be directly driven (to flex) by an electric signal, no additional speaker or microphone is required to use it in a resonator. Similar crystals are used in low-end phonograph cartridges: The movement of the stylus (needle) flexes a quartz crystal, which produces a small voltage, which is amplified and played through speakers. Quartz microphones are still available, though not common.
>Also some retards believe quartz crystals and other things grant special powers and bring balance to life
Years back, I had a small piece of unmounted Moldavite but some fucker stole it when I had a kegger party.
Didn't notice any loss of special powers or difference in life balance after it was gone.
