Fashion Notes: Labradorite necklace


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Monday, March 17, 2008 7:52 PM (Eastern)

handmade labradorite necklace

I had to lean at a funny angle to take this pic, because I wanted to capture the "schiller," or "flash" in the stones (which did sort of work). Otherwise the stones do hang properly. This is more accurate:

handmade labradorite necklace, different angle


I'm still fiddling around with this, though I like it on this chain.

It's occurred to me I gravitate toward Indian stones. Not just the stones, but the Indian cut. There are several different types of cuts; most of them more precise than Indian, but that's why I like it.

This isn't something I'd wear every day, it's for something rather specific. IRL it does have a lot of flash.

I make jewelry..This seems pretty easy to make and looks so cute.

Thanks! You do? Do you have a site?

Yeah, it's pretty straightforward. I saw a similar one on Etsy for $400+...they did theirs on silver with some ruby rondelles. Still I like mine better. :) The stones were so nice, I didn't want to detract from them too much.
