I couldn’t quite catch all the beauty of this stone on a photo, but I promise you, it shines on the whole surface, and the colours are a smooth gradient from yellowish green to almost turquoise. One of the most beautiful stones I’ve worked with.
I’ve been preparing to the upcoming Christmas season; not sure what people will want this year, so I’m trying to make as many heart pendants as possible (this is what they usually like). In the meantime I’m working on some new designs that I haven’t tried yet, so please be patient.
I promised I’d post a photo of the labradorite I brought back from Amsterdam. Beautiful <3
I don’t remember why I had this idea. I was going for something chunky, bold and more three dimensional than what I usually make. They resemble reptiles a little bit, hence the name. Also, I wanted to make something for myself to match my blue clothes (finally made something totally different and decided to sell the reptilian ones). I played around a bit, matching different grey and blue shades in different stones (agate, kyanite, lapis lazuli, amazonite, quartz and labradorite). There are countless tasteful combinations, I’ll have to explore this idea further when I have time.
I’m particularly proud of these somewhat ethnic looking earrings, and they took a long time to make. Shaping the wire, hammering, wrapping, hammering again… The stones used here are labradorite, lapis lazuli, natural moonstone and onyx. Just one color and the rest is neutral. Well, except the copper, of course.
This is another approach to the quartz point beads. This time I decided to make something that looks like a special powers amulet. I don’t know if it does, but I know that the wrapping is too complicated, as it covers the whole quartz part and it became almost invisible. The rough beads wrapped into the design are labradorite.
The pendant was supposed to be symmetric, but there are many irregularities. I must work more on this idea. Still, I hope somebody likes it.
