Carolyn must have heard about the Inuit legend of labradorite. So she had to make TWO pairs of earrings using this gemstone named after a Canadian province. The photograph here does not do this grey gemstone justice for if a bright light source were nearby, flashes of iridescent blue can be seen.

The flat square gemstone tiles were almost exactly matched by the heart shaped glass beads above. Carolyn used dissimilar seed bead colours for each pair. These are good examples of varied results using different colours in jewelry designs. The clear seed beads made those earrings look somehow paler. In contrast, the peridot green seed beads highlighted the yellowish-green tones of the glass beads more.
