Labrodorite is said to have fallen from the aurora borealis, a stone of magic and light. This magical stone will teach you to trust yourself and your intuition, showing you the magic in life and yourself.  For those who feel a little stuck in life, craving more vision to bring their dreams to life, labradorite is the perfect companion to carry daily. This oval labradorite is extra special as it is filled with purple and rainbow flashes of colour. The crystal is 3cm x 2.5cm.  

This necklace is 44cm including the clasp and I can seal the metal to prevent any reactions with your skin. 
 
I have set this necklace through the process of electroforming. I begin by preparing the crystal and creating the bail for the necklace, which the chain will pass through. Once I am happy with the setting, I paint a conductive paint onto the parts of the crystal I need the copper to plate onto. The next step is protecting the rest of the crystal with a temporary sealant. Once I have completed these steps, I’m finally ready to put the crystal into my electroforming solution, and use electricity to move copper from one place to another. This process can take anywhere from 24-48 hours, and requires constant monitoring to ensure the process is smooth, and does not happen too quickly, as this affects the quality of the plating. Once the piece is ready, I clean it, remove any sealant from the crystal and finally, sand and polish the copper and add a chain and clasp and its finished!!
 
It’s quite a process from beginning with a raw crystal, to the finished result and one that I absolutely love. I hope that you treasure your new piece of jewellery for a long time to come.
