Hi Everyone!
I am taking a quick break to get more coffee and to share with you a very cool bead. I have had this labradorite cab for some time now. Maybe two years. Lately I have been coming across it as I am looking for other bead items. It is no wonder since labradorite, on a metaphysical level, is It is said to dispel negativity and to bring clear understanding by enhancing clarity of thought and improving one's ability to cooperate with others in harmony. Labradorite is also said to give perseverance, strength and enhanced intuition when one is experiencing times of conflict and change. Ahhh yeahhh.... I think for me this stone has shown up just in the nik of time.

So here is a photo of my labradorite cab
The other day I was at Water Lily beads and studio located in the Brown Dog Antiques. I have shared with you before that this is one of the best bead stores and bead spaces in Florence.
I purchased this bead.
How cool is this????
Do you think it is labroadorite??

NOPE it is glass!!!!! We were so lucky to have bead artist Basha bring in her incredible beads for us. I could not leave this bead behind, as it matches my cab so well.
Can't wait to get started on this

  1. Yep, its a great match. You are a lucky lady to find that bead! I have a design going in my head. Can't wait to see what yours will be.

  2. Wow, that labradorite cab is amazing, Nicole! And the gorgeous bead you picked up is equally amazing. I can't wait to see what you do with these! :-)

  3. Both are beautiful. I look forward to seeing what you do with them!

  4. I cant wait to see what you create with these either! Those are some pretty beads!


  5. I love that cabochon and the bead is nice too, but with your bead work it is going to be stellar.
    I hope you are doing well and your mom is too.
    Love and hugs, dear one.

  6. OK whacked as it sounds, it looks like a broken heart. Like one side of a real heart, the picture you see in the medical pics, and the fractures look like emotional scars on that heart with layers of living and happy and sad times.

    I know I am whacked. Its beautiful!!!!

    OH AND YOUR FOOT???????? HOLY MOLY!!!! Please take care of self!
