Autumn Leaf Labrorite Pendant by Nambroth Autumn Leaf Labrorite Pendant by Nambroth
This is a Labradorite carefully hand wrapped in Argentium sterling silver. I love the autumn colors in this stone, and the lovely leaf shape. Really pretty!

Labradorite is an amazing stone that can appear dark at first, until you move it and the stone comes alive with colors flashing within. The effect is similar in appearance to opal fire. It is called chatoyancy/labradorescence, which is a fancy way of saying that the color 'flashes' or 'rolls' across the stone, like cat's-eye but far more vibrantly. It is a natural stone, and the effect is caused by refractive layers within the stone.

FAQ stuff, please read before asking:

- Yes! I do sell these! They are for sale here: [link]

-I hand wrap these pieces with nothing more than my fingers and some bitty pliers.
-I purchase the stones already cut and polished from rock and gem shows.
-My silver is purchased directly from a precious metals silver refinery.
-I use several different gauge and shaped wires in each piece.
-My methods are 100% self taught, unplanned, and haphazard and I do not plan on creating tutorials on how to make these. If you want to learn wire-wrapping there are already some good tutorials out there if you search on Google. Just please be respectful of the work and years I've invested in learning how to create my pendants and don't directly copy my work (I rely on these to pay my bills!).

Thanks for looking. :)

I was unable to find this particular piece in your store. Do you still produce this specific pendant?

Hi! Each pendant is 100% one of a kind. Unfortunately, this one sold quite a while ago.

Oh, that's nice! The shape of the pendant is what did it for me the most, I think. I love leaves. *.* I will keep an eye out on your profile in case you add something like that in the future. :3
