Pendant with labradorite and sterling silver leaves by Cari-Jane Hakes

I know you have seen pieces like this before - but actually there is a difference.  Labradorite.  It is the first time I have considered using this stone.  Why did I wait so long?  It is so beautiful!  A speckled grey exterior - the flecks are caught in a transparent layer beneath which is what looks like a fragment of blue iridescent butterfly wing.  It winks at you as you move it in the light.  I admit, I am a bit spell bound by this magical stone.
