Amazonite & Labradorite Necklace

This amazonite cab and labradorite beads were purchased recently at a gem & mineral show where I had a table. I couldn’t resist the cab or the beads and put off buying them till I made a few sales myself.

I wrapped the amazonite in an easy, somewhat haphazard way. My only plan was to show as much of the stone as possible without a lot of wire or structure. I kept it around for a week or so before deciding that I had to create a “chain”.

I finally added the labradorite rondelles with simple links. Now I I felt this was a finished piece!

Looking at the finished product, it seemed like I could have made it in just a few hours. I couldn’t seem to rush it along. Sometimes my creativity runs in slow or stop motion.
