About

KohlKraft's Magic Stones

My Magic Stones!

Always fascinated with natural stones, I've always been the one to pick up an unusual pebble or shattered quartz or crystal. As I grew older, my fascination with crystals and jewelry grew and I was often found trolling unusual haunts and quaint little shops with my friends.

My first steps into jewelry making started in 2006, when a co-worker asked me if I would like to get together with some of her friends for a wire-crocheting party. I couldn't believe how much fun I had. We later took a few wire-wrapping classes, and I absolutely fell in love with working with wire, and natural gem stones. I finally found my niche. I started spending every spare minute expanding on techniques I had learned, creating a few of my own. When I came across wire weaving, an infinite arena of possibilities opened up! Sometimes weaving, sometimes organically wrapping, or a combination of techniques has been a fascinating journey of learning.

Though I've been collecting rocks since I was a kid, I never delved into the Magic and Lore of gemstones until I started working with them in 2006. I have a number of semiprecious gems, crystals and "ordinary" rocks on hand, and holding them led to working with them, trying to sense what might be inside them. This process is still very new to me. To be honest, I sometimes pick up a stone and don't feel a thing. But other times — whether through intuition, or imagination — the rocks and crystals have given me inspiration and information, hinting at the secrets they hold within.

Cabochons, cut and polished, all natural gemstones and crystals remain my all time favorite material to wrap with. My son calls these "Moms Magic Stones"! Although I love working with healing crystals the most, I love fiddling and making something special. I have been endlessly fascinated with creating jewelry out of almost anything: tumbled and faceted crystals, healing stones and beads; some shells my sisters and I collected; a marble a friend had been given, unusual stones, beach glass, petrified wood, river rocks, and often accentuated them with seed beads and swarovski crystals... Whatever comes calling.

I hope you will find a beautiful piece of jewelry that calls out to you. If you do pick one, wear it well, in love and light and in good health.

I generally wrap or weave my magic stones in precious metals, mostly Argentium Anti-Tarnish, Hypoallergenic Argentium 935 Silver and 14k 14/20 purity Gold Filled Wire, both of which are excellent for people who are sensitive to metals. I also use Natural copper and sometimes use coated copper to bring out the natural tones in the stones and crystals.
