Isadora's Charm Necklace

Isadora's Charm Necklace


Gemstones: Peach Moonstone, Labradorite

This dainty little piece combines the beautiful gemstones labradorite and Peach Moonstone. The moonstone gives off a beautiful, gentle sheen and the labradorite has a lovely greenish flash. It hangs off of about an 18 inch chain - the chain is so pretty and catches the light. The pendant is about 1.25 inches long.


How Its Made: Each stone is handpicked to meet my high standards, and is then carefully positioned with special attention paid to color, gemstone flash, angle, and how it will hang on the body. Ring bands and many other connective parts are hand formed and are then sculpted onto the stone with a permanent epoxy. In the areas where I would like metal to be, I paint each piece with an electrically conductive paint. The next step is to put a removable, protective covering on all stones. The necklace will then go through a process where it is submerged into an acid bath and the areas with the conductive paint will begin to grow a super strong layer of 100% pure copper. This growth process takes 12 - 36 hours for each piece, and I am sure to make adjustments along the way. After this is done, each piece is one by one hand polished, cleaned, oxidized, polished again, and then given a clear protective coating. After they are all dry and finished, they are ready to be added to high quality, beautiful chains :)
