Evening Star Labradorite Pendant by Nambroth Evening Star Labradorite Pendant by Nambroth
This is a Labradorite carefully hand wrapped in Argentium sterling silver. I get excited about drop shaped stones for some reason-- they are just so elegant, to me. This one has such pretty blue colors!


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. :)

This is amazing!! And very beautiful. :D I once tried my hand at working with wire for a very simple project but it was still incredibly frustrating and difficult. I don't think I'll be returning to that craft anytime soon. XD You, though, are incredible at it! I'm looking forward to seeing more from you. :)

Oh wow, this looks amazing. ;A; You mind if a base the design of one of my OC's necklaces on this? I'll be sure to tell everyone where I got the inspiration from if I ever get around to drawing for once.

That's correct, I posted a journal on FA about it. It's a scary liability and doesn't sell well at cons! If anyone wants me to bring a piece, though, I can.

Beautiful. Truly lovely. I'd buy this in a heartbeat if I had the money.

When I looked at the thumbnail, I swore the stone was just blue with a forest painted on it. Then I see it's the natural veining and I'm just blown away.
