Boulder Opal pendant, rustic sparkly Australian opal, vibrant green blue sterling silver, wire wrapped pendant, gift



Australian Boulder Opal Sterling silver wire wrapped pendant

This is a gorgeous rustic Australian Boulder Opal 25mm x 10, sparkly gemmy green, blue and purple flash showing in small brilliant pinpricks as it's moved, lovely. It's minimally polished to show the earth's natural hidden beauty as it only has a thin layer of opal and I have left it to be as natural as possible. Unfortunately the photos don't do it justice. It's wrapped with Sterling silver wire with a weave bail with the finished pendant measuring 40 mm. 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!
