Creative Metalsmithing from Scratch with Kim St. Jean
Our beautiful carnelian gemstones are mostly translucent, and would be stunning additions to your wire art. We have multiple sizes of carnelian cabochons for all kinds of wire jewelry projects.

Carnelian has been used throughout history for its colorful and physical properties. Hot wax does not stick to carnelian, so many signet rings were made out of carnelian gemstone for making wax seals. Carnelian’s name comes from the Latin word for meat or flesh – think carnivore – and has a striking color that will illuminate your wire jewelry.

Wire-Sculpture stocks a wide assortment of cabochon gemstones to ensure we have the best products on hand for your wire jewelry making needs. Our wide selection of jewelry cabs comes from all over the world, and all our pieces are shaped and polished to impress.
