This one of a kind beaded labradorite necklace showcases soft shades of green and grey. The labradorite cabochon at the center has gorgeous green and blue flash, which is accented nicely by the seed beaded bezel of glass beads in sage and seafoam. The focal stone is surrounded with a beaded netting of semiprecious stones, including apatite, turquoise, faceted labradorite, rutilated quartz, turquoise and freshwater pearls. At the base is a trio of teardrop stones, including two pieces of faceted amazonite with a larger Peruvian opal drop at the center.
The adjustable neckline features variety of amazonite shapes and sizes, along with grey freshwater pearls and faceted labradorite. It adjusts from 16″ – 18″, and it fastens with a lobster claw clasp. Both the clasp and the extender chain have a gunmetal finish. The back side of the necklace is finished with soft ultra suede in a sage-y olive green, with a beaded mandala and a single grey moonstone bead.
These photos show the necklace at the shortest and longest length. Note that the fit looks a bit off in those images, simply because my mannequin has a very pronounced collar bone – unlike real humans. So, the fit will be far more flattering on an actual person.
