Lost and Found Labradorite

Recently a friend brought me a single bezel set labradorite earring, the other had been lost. She asked me if there was any way to convert it from an earring to a necklace. I added a bail and gave the sterling silver a good polishing as it had been stored away for some time gathering tarnish.

Personally, labradorite is one of my favorite stones and this one was a lovely example with great blue-green flash – too nice to live out its life cast off in some drawer, simply because its mate had been lost. I love repurposing things, giving them new life, and I was glad to see this stone go back to its owner with a renewed purpose. I think it turned out wonderfully! What do you think?
