Dreamer's Wish Labradorite Pendant by Nambroth Dreamer's Wish Labradorite Pendant by Nambroth
This is a Labradorite carefully hand wrapped in Argentium sterling silver. Another drop shaped cabochon-- yes, I'm addicted!-- they are just so elegant, to me. This one is just stunningly blue, like a morpho butterfly wing.


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. :)

These are gorgeous! I should put some pictures of my jewelry here. It's a totally different style. I don't think I have a style, anyway.

I hope it doesn't bother you that I saw your work and immediately thought you were my friend, who is also here on deviantART! I really wonder if you know her, because your style and technique are exactly the same! Most of her pendants are on Etsy, but if you have a minute, could you please pay her a visit? [link] I think she needs to know more people who do what she does and can give critique or just swap ideas. :) That's why she mostly posts her other drawings on DA, I think.

And yes, I totally love this pendant! Beautiful!
