This necklace is made almost entirely out of labradorite – because it’s a soft stone, I didn’t want to put the beads next to each other. I also didn’t want to use silver spacer beads – so I ended up using regular small glass beads I got at a local bead store. They blended in spectacularly.
I barely ever wear this necklace, but not because it’s not fabulous – it is. It looks amazing. Absolutely mesmerizing to look at. The problem is that it looks too rich. I’ve found that it’s good to wear with black, lavender, or otherwise dark subdued colors, and mostly for fancy evening outings.
I also will probably restring it – it’s currently on nylon wire, but I think that perhaps it’ll be better on silk string that’s typically used for pearl stringing.
