About this design:

Love, Luv!! Labradorites...I found these in Tucson and I am having a hard time parting with this piece. These labs are faceted and so are the blue quartz rounds. Gorgeous in person...


Labradorite, Blue faceted quartz, Sterling silver clasp.

    Amen,Ladies! It’s so nice to know I’m not the only one that doesn’t want to let go. Sometimes,I don’t even like to use certain stones,because they’re so beautiful that I just want to look at them. Good group therapy here!

    I love designs like this – statement pieces with lovely stones! But I often hear from customers that they think necklaces like these feels heavy around their neck. I don’t mind, so I would love to wear this!

    I love this beautiful bold piece Judith!

    I’m with the others, sometimes it is hard to part with a special piece or special beads. But just think, if you sell it, you can BUY MORE BEADS!! SLS

    Love the piece but I guess it might be a bit heavy to wear. Otherwise very impressive!
    Agree with you who says it’s hard to let go of certain beads and even ready pieces. I am getting ready for the local market here so making all sorts of staff…simple and inexpensive, too…no time to take pics…:-(

    Labradorite is one of my favs, too. This would feel nice and cool in hot weather, but probably looks like it is more for Fall or Winter. It is so simple and yet dramatic. Something about the total shape of this chunky piece intrigues me. It reminds me of sculpture. Also reminds me of ancient Greek statues for some reason. : ) I also like to just hold stones in my hand and feel the smooth cool weight.

    Oh, forgot (Long-winded, aren’t I! : ) Have to make up for the fact that I only can get on here once or twice a month.) Wanted to add that I like the title, fits perfectly.
