Unusual Andamooka Matrix Opal Sterling silver wire wrapped pendant

Want something different?

This lovely pendant is made with a 35 x 13 mm piece of Australian Andamooka Matrix opal. It has been heat treated to bring out the background colour and has a stunning blue and green patch of crystal opal. I've wire wrapped it in lots of Sterling silver wire and the finished pendant measures a large 45mm. It comes on a silver plated chain in an organza bag.

Totally one of a kind.

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!
