Fight Forest Fires
This pendant was made during the 2020 wildfire season here in California. The blue labradorite made me think of the water needed to quench the fires, while the tear shapes represent the sorrow I felt seeing some of my favorite places burn.
100% of the price of this pendant will be donated to the Friends Fire Fund to support the people and parks as they recover from these devastating fires.
We recommend wearing this pendant on a medium or long sized chain - your choice of 24 or 30 inch sterling silver.
labradorite, sterling silver, fine silver
Labradorite is super popular, partly due to the amazing colors that reflect from different stones. They can come in blues, greens, purples and more. The phenomenon of these particular flashes is known as labradorescence and results from light reflecting off parallel surfaces within the stones.
Silver, oh silver. This lustrous white metal is amazing - more reflective than gold, more conductive than copper and just plain gorgeous. When used for jewelry, silver is mixed with copper or zinc to provide more durability and reduce tarnishing. Fine silver is 99.9% silver while sterling silver is 92.5%. Other alloys are used for specific processes, such as reticulation (80% silver). All silver will tarnish over time, but can be easily cleaned and polished.
