Ocean Tiger by shadowfire-x Ocean Tiger by shadowfire-x
This handmade pendant features my favorite piece of labradorite I've worked with, so far. It had a beautiful blue/green/gold flash to it, with just a touch of copper, and it lends striped appearance to the stone. The wire is 21-gauge square and half-round silver-plated with a non-tarnish finish.

My pendants are for sale on my Etsy page [link] !

Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation! I can't tell you all how thrilled I am for your praise! My wire-wrapping was inspired by [link] . You should definitely check out their page - their pendants are amazing!

Oh wow, you have come so far with the wire-wrapping. This is a beautiful choice of stone and the neat swirls really complement it. I like you choice a squared wire, too, it mirrors the stripes on the stone.

Thank you! I really love using squared wire, it works for almost anything - the edges and sides to it catch the light so well.

Me too. It's so much easier to do with a cut cabochon - and it holds the stone in place without taking attention away from it.

It would be a pretty heavy earring. Alas, no two pieces of labradorite are alike, so it would be pretty difficult to make a matching pair.

You really let the labradorite have the focus, and the wire wrapping perfectly accentuates it.
