Labrador - Labradorite and Peridot Drop Earrings
Inspired by the majestic landscape of Canada's second most eastern province Labrador. It's vast rocky landscape with an abundance of wild greenery (the Peridot) meeting the dark grey blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. These earrings are designed with a large faceted Labradorite wire wrapped onto hammered sterling link then clusters of faceted peridot continues to be wire wrapped creating a cluster and finished with lever backs. Sterling silver throughout.
Reminiscent of the glimmering lights of the Aurora Borealis, the stone is as mystical as its iridescent changing colors of the Northern Lights which can be seen in the night skies of Labrador, hence its name. Labradorite is a reminder that the greatest healing stones are often connected with all the elements – the ground beneath your feet, the surging ocean and stretched out sky.
Legend says that once upon a time, an Inuit warrior saw that the Aurora had become trapped in a piece of stone. He took his spear and struck the rock to help set the light free. Moravian missionaries traveled to this remote Canadian wilderness back in the 18th century and became so enchanted with the mystical stones that they carried them back to Europe.
This magical stone from the earth was later discovered in the hinterlands of other arctic countries such as Finland, Norway and Russia. The Finns named this stone Spectrolite as it seemed to capture every shade in the whole spectrum of existence. Whatever the name, this stone has long been synonymous with the ideas of art and magic. It’s for those who want to embrace the mysteries of the universe – all while making sense of their own space.
The wire wrapping on my designs is never pre-fabricated or purchased in bulk. I meticulously and thoughtfully wrap each design.
