This post is hush hush. But since I don’t think my daughter-in-law reads my blog, I’m going to share with you a necklace that I just made for her.
A little background: I called my son M to ask what K likes with Christmas in mind. He rattled off a few interests of hers and the one that caught my attention was “moldavite”. I said, what the heck is moldavite? He said, “well, she is into crystals and stones and that moldavite was one that she likes.”
Of course this made it interesting to me. So I looked up moldavite on Google. It is a fragment from a meteor that fell to earth 15 million years ago in present-day Nördlinger Ries … 99 % of all moldavite finds are from Southern Bohemian localities, 1% were found in Southern Moravian (Czech Republic) localities. A really great website to learn about this amazing natural crystal-like stone is www.aboutmoldavites.com. If you want to read about moldavite’s metaphysical properties, you can go to www.moldaviteman.com/metaproperties.html
Moldavite is just “cool”! This beautiful piece was found in the Czech Republic.
So I took myself to my favorite online store…ebay and sure enough, found a seller of moldavite, FrantFrant. I found this piece that I could buy outright without having to bid for it and simply bought it. I was a little worried that it might not get here in time (all the way from the Czech Republic) for me to make something with it, but luckily, I had ordered it with plenty of time to spare.
FrantFrant did a great job of getting it to me in a protected wrap and a certificate of authenticity. It tells me where the fragment was found, its size and shape etc.
I was so excited when it arrived and I opened the package immediately. I went straight away to my desk and made a wired-wrapping for it (only two tries) and made it into a necklace. I think she is going to love it.
I sure hope K loves it as much as I do. Ha, I liked it so much I ordered another fragment for myself!
What do you think?
