ABOUT:

Labradorite, the Gemstone of Magic, the "Temple of the Stars"

Labradorite has been known for thousands of years and is surrounded by myth. This mystical gemstone, said to represent the “temple of the stars”, fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms. It is, in every sense, a Stone of Magic, a crystal of shamans, diviners, healers, and all who travel and embrace the universe seeking knowledge and guidance. For self-discovery, it is excellent for awakening one's own awareness as a soul and it stimulates intuition, telepathy, psychic abilities and past-life recall.

Energies: ♥ Transformative ♥ Calming ♥ Stimulates creativity, imagination and intuition, ♥ Repels negativity and stress ♥

This magical gemstone, with its iridescent flashes of color, can be very beneficial for all chakras. It is especially useful in the upper chakras including the Throat, Third Eye and Crown chakra.

Opal

Like lightning in a rainbow, it flashes its brilliance with even the slightest movement and claims notice by all who witness its phenomenal “fire.” This is a stone so dedicated to the eye, so pleasing to the sight, it inspires love and hope, innocence and purity, luck and happiness.  

It is said to enkindle optimism, enthusiasm and creativity, and allows for the release of inhibitions inspiring love and passion. Opal enhances cosmic consciousness and stimulates flashes of intuition and insight, yet is a protective stone for deep inner work and meditations.

MATERIALS:

  • - PREMO polymer clay (an outstanding quality polymer clay that is very strong and lightweight)
  • - Our handmade glow-in-the-dark clay
  • - Swarovski crystals and beads
  • - Labradorite gemstone
  • - Opals
  • - MICA powders
  • - 14 karat gold-filled chain
  • - Magick

GLOW-IN-THE-DARK:

This new phosphorescent material we use is an eco-friendly alkaline earth aluminate pigment that is non-toxic and non-radioactive.

In order to glow, it needs to be charged for just a few minutes with any source of light (artificial light or sunlight), then it can emit a luminous glow for hours.  If it is left to be exposed to light for an hour or more, it is capable of glowing all night long. 

Its ability to glow can last for at least 20 years.


PROCEDURE:

We carefully sculpted by hand every small detail you see on this pendant, based on our own design. Even the braid was hand-done using long pieces of polymer clay "snakes". We didn't use any molds.

After sculpting / adding details, I cured the necklace a couple of times in an oven to harden, then we added a clear coating to protect the surface of the artwork.

COLORS:

Please note that each color may slightly differ from the photos due to different monitor settings.

SIZE:

Pendant: 

- 80 mm wide, approximately 105 mm tall

Chain:

- total length: 22 inches, adjustable (including the width of the pendant)

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

Handle with care:

  • Avoid scratching the surface of the jewelry
  • Do not drop the piece. The brand of polymer clay we use is very strong: it is not brittle, not fragile, but make sure you don't bend the delicate parts forcefully. You need to be careful with the Swarovski crystals, beads and gemstones, as those could break. 
  • Keep the piece away from perfume, hairspray, deodorant, nail polish
  • Use a soft, moist fabric / damp cloth to gently wipe the surface of the polymer clay. You may also use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean the textured surfaces. 
  • 14 karat gold-filled chain does not tarnish
  • Keep it away from high heat 
  • Take off the piece when showering or swimming (polymer clay itself is waterproof, but the sealer is just water-resistant. A quick wash is not a problem though.
  • Please note that polymer clay has a bit of flexibility to it (that is more prominent in hot weather) that is perfectly normal.
