I loved the appearance of endless depth these stones had. They did not have the typical bright blue flash,but instead the overall effect of the layers of ashen base with milky translucent areas create the overall navy blue coloration in the labradorite stones. Although silver would be an acceptable metal I chose the bright copper to give added contrast to the stone color. I also wanted to spice the navy blue and tone down the copper flashiness by using the straight vertical lines, which was reminiscent of pin-striping to me. I envision the earrings to be worn with a traditional business suit so they can hint at the wearer's hidden personality without detracting from their business attire.
