The first piece of copper jewelry I made was when I was learning how to form a copper cuff and handling a hammer. I learned there is a rhythm when striking the metal. Hammering came natural for me so I decided to add this texture to my jewelry. I owe all my techniques to my wonderful husband the jeweler and mentor.

Taking care of your jewelry:  This piece of brass jewelry is high polished and hammered so it will keep its color that it has.  If you want to shine it up just use a polishing cloth, which we have available under Accessories.

LABRADORITE

Labradorite is a popular decorative stone because of its labradorescence, which creates a dazzling optical phenomenon of a blue green to deep blue sheen that shimmers in the light. Other varieties, including rare specimens, offer a stunning rainbow of green, violet, or orange shimmer called spectrolite. Thanks to the parallel formation of mineral intergrowths within its structure, these lights bounce back-and-forth, which creates its distinctive shimmery, ethereal effect.

HEALING PROPERTIES

If you're in the mood to wax philosophical, grab your Labradorite crystal stone and reach for the stars in your quest for a higher consciousness. It might seem like everyday realness down here on planet earth, but the Labradorite crystal stone meaning gives you a pathway that bridges the gap between the heavens and physical reality. The Labradorite meaning is associated with shamanism, the ancient form of spirituality where healing is achieved in parallel planes of existence and different states of consciousness.

WHERE IT’S FOUND

Labradorite is a gemstone that was named after Labrador in Canada, where it was found on the Isle of Paul, near Nain in 1770. It has since been found in other places, including Finland, Madagascar, and Australia. After its discovery, Lab became popular with the missionaries.
