Merkaba: The Challenge

A Merkaba is a star tetrahedron consisting of two interpenetrating three-sided pyramids that form a three-dimensional star of David.


I call it a fun pointy shape, and funnily enough it has been on my mind as to how to make it into a pendant, considering it has to be wire wrapped.

It also has to be pretty damn perfect because it was one of the most expensive stones I bought (in terms of size and quality) at the Rock, Gem 'n' Bead show at Event City in Manchester a couple of weeks ago.

Here's what I have so far:

I probably won't end up keeping it like this because I don't think the copper works very well with Amethyst and I did a scruffy job at twisting the loop.
If anyone reading this has any ideas then please let me know. This will be one of my luxury (aka expensive) items on my Etsy store when it is finished.
