When I first started wire wrapping, I wasn’t serious about it at all. In fact, Daryl told me, “One day this will make you a lot of money. You can build a business out of this,” I didn’t believe him. I was not business savvy. I wish he could see me now. Not only does Elon Musk have a moldavite, the gem that Daryl introduced me to, that I wrapped, but I have had a lot of success with my jewelry on and offline.

I once had a store in Dallas and one in Houston. Those closed down and life happened. Many of you know my story of how Elon Musk literally saved me–but he did more than that. He exposed my art to millions of people around the world. Several times.

Every time Elon responded to one of my mineral related tweets or even my jewelry tweets, I made sales. I am still making sales. In fact, my trip to Atlanta was funded by my jewelry sales from several folks who own Teslas and own stock in Tesla. I now own stock in Tesla and am saving up for a Cybertruck.

 

I wanted to give back to this awesome community so I used my jewelry to promote good things. One month I wrapped a bunch of Tesla and SpaceX pins and gave them away–to enter all one had to do was share why they love Tesla.

This time, I gave away a Shungite wrapped in Argentium silver and to enter that giveaway all one had to do was say why they love or support Elon Musk. The winner was a super awesome woman I have been friends with a year now and she is also one of the most popular Twitter users Elon interacts with.

The type of Shungite that is wrapped is known as Elite or Silver Shungite and is the higher priced and rarer variety. Unlike the other type of Shungite, Silver Shungite has a silver sheen.

 

 

Her name is Evelyn. She lives near the SpaceX Boca Chica site and often visits the Starship to take photos and video as it is being built. Even Elon retweeted her videos. In fact, it was Evelyn who inspired Elon Musk to send a Tesla Roadster to Mars on the maiden voyage of the Falcon Heavy.

This week, Evelyn took a video wearing the Shungite I made with the Starship in the background.

I definitely plan to do more giveaways in the future and hopefully one day I will be able to have Elon send one of my jewelry pieces to space. I would totally crowdfund it to cover the cost or maybe even barter. It may seem like a pipe dream, but dreams definitely come true–as we have seen with Elon Musk making his come true.

Thank you, Evelyn, for taking the time to model my jewelry over at SpaceX.

If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to connect with Evelyn on Twitter.

 

 

Red Garnet

There are many types of Garnet but today I am writing about a luscious type of garnet that is a beautiful shade of red. It ranges from a ruby red to a dark blood red color and with the light hits it just right, it seems to have this inner glow of fire. Red, or...

Selenite: A Mineral of Pure Light

Back to topic: Selenite is almost like light itself took a mineral form. It seems to have this inner etheral glow that just soothes the eyes when you look upon it. It's one of my favorite minerals to get creative with as it is fragile, yet easily manageable when...

The Simple Elegance of Black Spinel

Black spinel is one of many types of spinel, but it has its own unique beauty and elegance. I have been able to get my hands on two beautifully cut gemstones and am debating on keeping one for myself.  These gems (in my tweet below) are cut and faceted with the rose...

My Lovely Little Chunk Of Lead Ore, Galena

While in Atlanta last year, I stumbled onto this goddess of a gem. It’s a mix of Galena, Pyrite, and clear Calcite. Actually I think its Chalcopyrite because pyrite isn’t usually that bright. But I was told it was Pyrite when I got it.   I am in love...

I can make something for you

I wire wrap gems and minerals into jewelry with precious or base metals such as copper or 14K Gold filled wire. There are three steps that you take: choose a style, select a stone, and pick your metal. Download the brochure for more information or to place an order.
