OOAK Midnight Forest - Labradorite and Moonstone Leaf and Vine Pendant
Imagine a walk through the midnight forest ......
This unique pendant features a large labradorite gemstone and two smaller blue moonstone gemstones.
As the light hits it, the labradorite displays the most amazing flashes of yellow-green outlined with 'lightening' flashes of brilliant blue.
Each leaf has been hand cut and soldered into position. Three of them caress the stone to hold it in position.
The chain is finished with a handmade clasp.
The silver has been oxidised and relieved to highlight the design and give a lovely patina.
The chain is oxidised to match and then the piece is sealed with a protective wax to help protect the oxidised surface.
This is a substantial, one-of-a-kind pendant.
Materials - sterling silver
Gemstones - 33 x 20 mm labradorite and 5 mm blue moonstones
Pendant dimensions - approximately 40 x 48 mm (including the loop)
Weight - approximately 31 gms
Chain - approximately 18" oxidised sterling silver
As with all of my pieces, each and every jump ring is soldered closed to prevent any piece of the pendant coming apart or getting lost.

According to Eskimo legend, the Northern Lights were once imprisoned in the rocks along the coast of Labrador.
A wandering Eskimo warrior found them and freed most of the lights with a mighty blow of his spear, but some remained trapped inside the stone.
It's these trapped lights which give Labradorite it's gorgeous colour and light.
Traditionally, Labradorite is thought to bring good luck and dispel negativity.
Moonstone is a stone for new beginnings - a stone of inner growth and strength.
It helps to soothe emotional instability and stress and provide calmness, balance and harmony.
It is a stone strongly associated with women and feminine wisdom.
Moonstone is the birthstone for June.
