Evening Blue Labradorite Pendant by Nambroth Evening Blue Labradorite Pendant by Nambroth
This is a Labradorite carefully hand wrapped in Argentium sterling silver. This pendant rolls with the deepest rich blues, and the stone has a deep cut and a very dark base, which makes the pendant very deep, quiet, and powerful.

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. :)

Is that from our Labrador, Canada, indeed?

Much of it comes from Labrador, and some of it comes from other areas where this stone is found. :)

I mention it in the description, they are mostly from rock and gem shows. I go to one annually. :)
You can find a listing if you search google "Rock and gem shows"

Thank you very much for your advice. I suppose one can find them just like I find materials for my Mokume Gane pendants. Thank you again and good luck, your jewellery is truly adorable!
