A matte hand-cut Canadian Labradorite is nestled in Sterling Silver organic shaped water casting. The casting gives the pendant a touch of Brutalism, an homage to the famous Montreal Brutalist jewellery designers of the 1970's like Guy Vidal.
The water casting is created by pouring molten silver over rocks and water. As the silver hits the water it solidifies into droplet shapes and the rocks keep the silver from spreading into little pieces.
Dimensions approximately 2.5" x 2" with a 20" silver chain.
Labradorite is named for the region if Labrador on the North Eastern Coast of Canada. Indigenous people used to associate the origin story of Labradorite to the Aurora Borealis due to the dancing fluorescent flash effects of light and colour. Unlike the blue Labradorite found elsewhere, Canadian Labradorite tends to be green or grey based with flashes of orange, yellow and sometimes other colours. A matte polish softens the fluorescent flash for those who want a more understated effect.
The Brutalist Canadian Labradorite Pendant is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
