With restrictions and staffing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, my rural Post Office is struggling to maintain service. They are working hard, with small town postmasters sharing and keeping open three different offices 40 to 60 miles apart. Still, there have been and are anticipated service disruptions in local mail deliveries and pick-up.

My shop is open and all items listed here are available to purchase online but now I am shipping items only once per week when I make my essential trip (to a larger town with fewer disruptions). This might mean your item will ship right away, or in up to 7 days. I'll keep you posted when I receive your order. Wishing you good health and hoping you stay safe in these unprecedented circumstances.

Share:

A rustic labradorite gemstone pendant set in dark patina hammered copper has eye catching schiller of aqua, dark blue, and gold. This blue flash labradorite necklace is set in a handcrafted tab mount of hand textured copper with a contrasting sterling silver rivet holding the bail. The dark antique copper pendant has a lovely texture on the backplate, that looks almost like tooled leather. A secret crescent moon cut-out on the back allows the labradorite gemstone to shimmer with coppery golden highlights there for only you to see.

Labradorite is such a fascinating stone. It can look simply grey or brownish black until you tilt or turn the stone just so. Iridescent color play, called labradorescence, changes the stone's appearance instantly. The colors are dispersed reflections off cleavage planes within the stone. I'm told that the lapidary (stone cutter) has to orient these planes so that the cabochon will show the best color play with the stone upright. This labradorite stone is cut well, showing aqua, blue green, blue, bronze, and a coppery brown schiller. My handcrafted copper setting complements its primarily blue-green color. The solid copper cable chain is embellished with two tiny saucers of labradorite at the clasp, one of which displays brilliant golden-green, the other a subtle blue.
