Opal pendant, Unusual Matrix Australian opal, sterling silver wire wrapped pendant, unisex gift
This is a very unusual opal, a matrix from Andamooka. Perhaps many would pass it by, but I love the tiny pinfire sparkles of colour and how unusual it is. It is wire wrapped in sterling silver wire and has been heat treated to darken the background. The finished pendant measures 30 mm and it comes on a free silver plated chain in an organza bag and could be worn by guys or gals. If you like unique jewellery, this is for you.
Wire wrapping Opals
The opals I wire wrap are all genuine solid Australian opal (unless the description is for a doublet which is a slice of opal glued to a backing), I don’t deal in synthetic opal. I buy rough and finished opal directly from the miners and cut and polish many by hand myself. My pendants are totally handmade, wire wrapped in Sterling Silver or 14k Gold Filled wire or findings. No glues, no fixatives, just the tension of the wire holding it together. The description of gemstones that most appeals to me is that they are "part of the earth's DNA" and they have an enduring quality and unique beauty - no two opals are the same. All my jewellery is one of a kind, created in the inspiration of the moment and made with love.
