Australian raw Koroit Boulder Opal Sterling wire wrapped pendant



Australian raw Koroit Boulder Opal Sterling wire wrapped pendant

This is a large 30 mm nugget of rough Australian Koroit Boulder opal with a beautiful window of violet colour in the middle. It is part polished on the face with the rest of the opal exactly as it comes out of the ground. Rustic and unique, it is wire wrapped in sterling silver 20g square wire. The finished pendant measures 40 mm and it comes on a free silver plated chain in an organza bag and could be worn by guys or gals.

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.
