Copper & Labradorite Pendant
Labradorite Pendant 01 has a gorgeous rock set in textured copper sheet cut in the shape of a flower.
I used my piercing saw to cut out the flower shape and tabs that secure the stone. I like this setting for rock pendants which showcases the stone beautifully. This amazing piece of Labradorite gives green and gold flashes depending on the angle you view it from.
There is no soldering involved in setting the stone. A lot of sawing and filing does happen. If it is a translucent stone then the copper colour shows through the stone beautifully with this setting.
