Labradorite Pendant


About this design:

My first purchase of a gemstone made at a little tiny shop in St. Augustine. I bought this after my husband bought the pink opal necklace. Then I found Lima Beads. I will likely wear this beautiful flashy stone. Gorgeous blue and gold tones. I didn't want a wrap it had a hole but needed to cover the hole because it wasn't too pretty an hole.

Components:

Labradorite, and silver plated wire.

    Faith, I think I too was in that little tiny shop. Is it the place with the bitty white front porch? I stopped there on the way to Orlando this year.

    Thank you Karen, Linda, and Sarah. The shop I got this in is a tiny little shack like building down on George Street where all the tourist shops are and the Ghost, Horse Carriage rides, and the Trolley Train runs. I don’t think it even had a name. Cannot get more than 4 bodies into it at a time. It is like stepping into a large closet. It’s made of barn siding wood unfinished like they actually went out and got old barn wood. They sell their stones by weight and what they call current price which sucks. I went back and for smaller stones that day they wanted almost 2 times as much.

    No, different place. The bead chick is up the street (right across from Ripley)
