Silence Pendant with Labradorite & Moonstone
A full moon rises over a silent glacial lake at midwinter. The northern lights dance overhead and are reflected in the still water.
Smaller sister-pendant to the Stillness Necklace, this piece features the same handmade trees, with the addition of a blue moonstone to pair with the quite spectacular labradorite. The patina is rainbow coloured, but will get somewhat darker over time. Store this in a sealable plastic bag to preserve the patina. Can you believe that magenta and purple colour on the left side?
The nature of labradorite means that the colour and depth change with the light. I have tried to capture the elusive quality of this particular specimen. If you need more images to make your decision, please feel free to send an email. See below for more details.
"Thou silver deity of secret night,
Direct my footsteps through the woodland shade;
Thou conscious witness of unknown delight,
The Lover's guardian, and the Muse's aid!
By thy pale beams I solitary rove,
To thee my tender grief confide;
Serenely sweet you gild the silent grove,
My friend, my goddess, and my guide.
E'en thee, fair queen, from thy amazing height,
The charms of young Endymion drew;
Veil'd with the mantle of concealing night;
With all thy greatness and thy coldness too."
Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, ‘Hymn to the Moon’.
