This pendant was handcrafted with two varieties of opal; a faceted, gem-quality Mexican fire opal and fiery Ethiopian welo opal beads cascading down the sides. Still photos do not do this piece justice since opals are best-appreciated when they move and the fire is allowed to "roll". Solid Sterling silver wire was gracefully woven to cascade around the stones in this stunning, one-of-a-kind piece. The wire was oxidized naturally with egg yolk, then sealed with clear lacquer to resist tarnish and preserve the aged finish of the piece. The whole pendant measures 27x17x14mm (1.1" x 0.7" x 0.6") and comes suspended on your choice of chain.
This piece comes in a luxurious, black velvet jeweler's box, contained in a cardboard outer shell (so you can wrap the box without damaging the velvet); perfect for gift-giving. This is an heirloom-quality piece you can treasure for many years to come. This ships fully-insured and with international tracking, for your convenience and peace of mind. Hurry before someone else buys it first!
