A labradorite teardrop cabochon is set in a hand woven bezel of glass seed beads, and accented with a single little freshwater pearl. It hangs from a neckline of glass seed beads in dreamy matte metallic blue, which is accented with faceted labradorite beads, freshwater pearls and hematite beads.
About 2/3 of the cabochon’s surface shows flashy blue iridescence, while the bottom third is dark – hence the “eclipse” in the name. The neckline is adjustable from about 18″ – 20.5″, and the photos with the mannequin show it worn at both the longest and shortest lengths (though you can also adjust it to a setting in between). It fastens with a lobster claw clasp, which matches the gunmetal finish of the extender chain. The back of the pendant is lined with luxuriously soft ultra suede in a complementary shade of dusky blue.
Labradorite: The indigenous people of Newfoundland believed that the Northern Lights were trapped within this stone; with it’s gorgeous play of light and ethereal color, it’s easy to understand how they’d think it came from the aurora borealis. It’s believed to be a stone of transformation, imparting strength and tenacity in the face of change. It is said to strengthen intuition and insight, to bolster self esteem and trust, and to ease fear and worry.
Hematite: is said to be grounding and protective, and to improve focus.
Freshwater pearls: are believed to impart calmness, loyalty and integrity.
