This is a 15mm Australian Boulder opal, wire wrapped in sterling silver wire with weave and coil. It has come nice blue-green colour at the top, peeking out of the ironstone. It has a coating of jewellery grade resin that enhances the colour. The finished pendant measures 30 mm and it comes on a free silver plated chain in an organza bag.
Wire Wrapping Opals
My pendants are totally handmade, opals made into unique pendants by the use of sterling silver or 14k gold filled wire or findings. I buy rough opal directly from the miners and cut and polish many by hand. 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". Even if you feel they don't have any special metaphysical properties, I am sure you will agree with me that they have an enduring quality and beauty. All my jewellery is one of a kind, created in the inspiration of the moment and made with care. I use quality materials and aim to produce beautiful, affordable items. Each one is unique, as even if I try and repeat a design, it's never quite the same, especially with opals!
