I bought this pyrite and quartz specimen a while back and it’s unfortunately unfit for jewelry purposes. Sooo I made it into a piece of ‘table jewelry’, so it wouldn’t have to live in a zipper baggie forever and ever.
Good thing I didn’t make it into a ring because it would’ve crumbled in a thousand pieces in a second – it cracked in half when it was being set here.
This was an exercise in full-on procrastination. I’m glad my avoidance of actual work produced something tangible, instead of just randomly searching the web. There’s a really good term I learned recently that fully describes this type of work: go here.
*most of my images come from my handy phone, so sorry for the iffy quality.
