Small Australian Boulder Opal sterling silver wire wrapped pendant, hidden sparkles



Australian Boulder Opal Sterling wire wrapped pendant

This is a 20 mm Australian Boulder opal, wire wrapped in sterling silver wire. It appears dark at first glance, yet there is a seam of vibrant red, green and orange pinfire when it's turned to catch the light. Very sweet. the finished pendant measures 30 mm and it comes on a free silver plated chain in an organza bag.

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.
