GZ Guildmaster's Necklace by HylianJean GZ Guildmaster's Necklace by HylianJean
The crystal machine twirls slowly in its insulated suspensors, a giant in its rumbling chamber, orbited by the coils, calibrators, and ornamented dials of its awe-inspiring operation.
All around the air crackles with static which manifests in periodic thundershocks, blinks of lightning arcing away from the machine to lesser crystals of the collector apparatus.
It is power, in symbol and in application, vital and carefully stewarded by maintainers and guildspeople who wear the insignia of their honored stations.

This is the third large pendant in my series, a sparkling angel-aura quartz point (natural quartz crystal modified with a permanent iridescent lustre), carefully bracketed in fine brass wire and mounted to a hand-cut brass backing.

Now that it has shown in the art show at SteamCon II with the rest of its brethren, it is available for sale through my Etsy shop. [It has sold! But if you like it please do have a look at the other images of it on the listing: [link]]

I'll be submitting more of the series to DA soon! Thanks for your views!

Can You please, tell me a bit more about this part "natural quartz crystal modified with a permanent iridescent lustre".
Is it something like paint, is it available somewhere? Or it was already done when You bought the crystal?
Asking 'cause the effect is stunning, at first glimpse I thought the crystal is back lighted or something, and if it's the "natural" effect, then I have no words to describe how I love the outcome.

Great composition, You must have put a lot of heart into making this one, as well as the others.

You can find out more about the process used to change these crystals in this Wikipedia article about Aqua Aura quartz, a different color than the Angel Aura that I used here. It's not something I have the equipment to do, myself. There is no backlighting used in this picture, just a small spotlight. And yes, these works are all my beloved babies, definitely far more care put into them than I could ever put a fitting price on when selling them. Thanks for commenting, I'm glad you like it!
