Dearest kindred one, this is for you, you know who you are:
Once upon a time, you didn’t belong to yourself. You made yourself small, you acquiesced, you sacrificed yourself on the pyre of a dream; a person who felt slightly rotten, a wild vision unrealized, an idea of yourself that couldn’t materialize. There was a slippage, you saw yourself in dreams, heard the whispered passwords for the way out, but woke up to the same blank abyss. The same haunting cycles that felt inescapable. Then one day you made a choice to begin to accept yourself. You carefully shook hands with your shadow, promising to recognize it and care for it rather than to press it down. You agreed you would pull the murky things from the root even if it bloodied your hands. You stared at the black hole inside you and winked rather than shrank away. There is a way in, there is a way out. These ways are filled with dry bones, with heaving sobs, with sleepless nights and misunderstandings with loved ones- but each day, that path towards acceptance strengthens you. I am there with you on the path even if it is my own.

This ring is comprised of an antique setting manipulated with my beloved sparrow claws grasping each side, set with a gorgeous purple labradorite. Cast in sterling silver, each ring is hand oxidized to achieve our shade of stormy gray and then highlighted to reveal the bright luminous silver beneath.

Purple Labradorite: 

Labradorite with a ‘full range’ of colors, including purple, has also been called ‘Spectrolite’ ~ though over the years these more colorful iterations have been given many other names depending on the range of colors captured in the specific cuts we’ve been able to collect in our “special jewels”, and now, in our specific ring cuts. Sometimes they are called ‘Sunset Labs’ for the way they appear to hold the melting colors of the sun setting - pinks and lavenders as well as even hints of flaming reds and deep purples, are all married within one stone. Other stones under the name ‘Belladonna’ vary from the purples of wet oyster shells to the pale lavender of the petals of belladonna flowers - each stone is unique and carries with it, its time underground - where under pressure, its glorious colors bloomed within. Interestingly, it’s light that enables its range of colors to be reveled - turning it in the light, while on the finger or in ones hand - creates a kind of ‘shapeshifting’ effect - the internal fractures and layers within the stone allow for different colors within the stone shift, flash, and to reveal themselves differently. I’m sure there is more science and scientific words at play here that I could be using more effectively and may be able to as my knowledge expands, but as someone who has been wearing and has been interested in labradorite since I was a child - it is a pleasure and a joy to be able to be working with this beautiful earth made material, to be able to offer it here, now, to you, in these beautiful cuts.

Please keep in mind that these stones are ‘earth made’ and then each one is hand cut and hand formed, to specifically fit our rings. You will see the earth’s inclusions inside and outside each ring - some of which I call ‘eye freckles’ or ‘witch hairs’ ~ ‘tiger stripes’ and ‘crystal glitter or mini galaxies’ these are associative names that I’ve assigned these ‘imperfections’ meaning to, that run alongside the scientific designations of what these inclusions are and why they occur ( perhaps more heat or pressure the stone was under  - apt metaphor for these times ? )  Nothing is imperfect to me. I see evidence of a jeweler’s or a stone cutter’s hand and I think of Rodin, and how his sculptures included the evidence of his hands - from a hundred plus years ago - and how that connects me and my team, to this lineage of hand-making, in a time when machinated ‘perfect’ work is becoming more and more normalized. I am trying to resist this idea of ‘perfection’, and I implore the same of you. These are all hand made, and earth made beautiful objects, so inherently, by today’s standards, they are ‘imperfect’ - because humans had their hands, and more importantly, their hearts on them.

These purple labradorite stones range in color from light grey purple, to deep purple, as well as pink and orange tones. As mentioned above, because we have such a limited amount, specific preferences can not be accommodated but each stone is chosen by hand for its beauty.
