I am so pleased with the way this piece turned out. I sat for a long time deciding what to do with this dreamy Australian Boulder Opal.

The natural layering inside of stones, especially Boulder Opals such as this one, can be so magical. Providing depth for the scene.

Is it a tidal pool?
The outer reaches of space?
The debate is still out I guess.

This opal, wrapped in fine silver and backed on sterling has been oxidized and finalized into a pendant by a hand turned sterling rod acting as a bail. The 18 inch sterling bar and link chain is alternated with gold filled oval links, and is completed with an oversized lobster clasp in the back.

This piece has been oxidized using a environmentally safe, tried and true method. This way of doing things takes longer, but it’s well worth the reward in the end, bringing more of a true aged look with the deep and rich colors.

The pendant measures 1.65 inches from top to bottom, the widest point is 0.85 inches.

This is handmade and one of a kind. I have created this in an eco-friendly manner — from hand with no harsh jewelers chemicals and no power tools. 
The old fashioned way, using recycled silver.
 
Thus, it has taken me a considerable amount of time compared to using other modern jewelry techniques. Therefore, file marks, as well as asymmetries are all part of the hand-fashioned process.
** PLEASE NOTE: I can not make changes to sizing, chain lengths, or oxidation preferences once a piece is complete; I am not set up to do so. How my items show here is the final product. Because of my power tool-free ways, and lack of traditional jewelers chemicals in my process, this piece is sold as you see it here. **
