Moxie Labradorite Pendant, named after my grandfather's favorite drink. This pendant is handmade with sterling silver and a Labradorite gemstone. A unique gemstone showing hints of green and gold. Displayed with a Matte Finish. It measures to be 2.75 X .70 inch (70 X 18 mm). If you would like a larger or smaller pendant, or with a different gemstone, contact me. It will take up to 3 weeks to ship. The chain is sold separately.
I make each piece of jewelry as similar as possible to the photos on this website. However, keep in mind that since each item is handmade there will be slight differences compared to the item in the photo. I take pride in my work and want all of my customers to be satisfied.
I begin each pendant by carefully sawing the shape of my design into a sheet of sterling silver. I then solder a bezel (the frame around the stone) onto the silver shape to prepare for the stone-setting process. The next step is bending the silver for a three-dimensional shape before soldering a silver, pendant bail (the loop that the chain goes through) behind the pendant. Once all of the silver is soldered together I sand all around each sharp edge with tools and sandpaper. Lastly, I place the cabochon stone into the bezel and hammer the bezel from the bottom up so that it holds down the stone.
