Welcome to the 5th Do Over Challenge Reveal.
This is one of my favorite gemstones, but I don’t work with it much. It’s too hard to photograph and for someone that isn’t familiar with all the beautiful colors and inclusions in the gemstone, it just looks like a dark, greenish blob in photo’s. In fact this was the last strand of labradorite I bought and that was over six years ago.
Labradorite is a sister to moonstone and often called black moonstone.
Labradorite is said to give perseverance, strength and enhanced intuition when one is experiencing times of conflict and change. Labradorite is told to be helpful in treating eye and brain disorders, and to help regulate metabolism and the digestive process. It is also thought to bring good luck.
I used Irish linen cord for these earrings. I thought this was going to be a fast project. Two hours later….
Now these earrings turned out exactly like I imagined them. I made the polymer clay thingy’s. My husband took one look at them and said, “SunTzu,” and I’m all like ”dude, what?” The thing is I will be making more of these earrings and I need to come up with a better name then clubs or war weapons.
This 25″ necklace has one of my full size Aspen Leaves with a SKL clasp and some really cool double link chain.
I want to thank all the brave souls who participated. The Do Over Challenge is ALWAYS planned and posted six months in advance. So mark you calendars and save the date for the next one. Grab the badge below.
