Opal Pendant

Here’s a custom piece I did last Fall.  The client brought me an opal ring – the stone was gorgeous, but she just didn’t wear it.  She asked me to re-set the stone in a pendant – the design was of my choice, she said; “Make something with it, I trust you.”  To any artist, such words are both flattering, and terrifying.  Here is the finished piece; I was pretty thrilled with it, and (thankfully) so was she!

This is the launching off point for some newer pieces that I’m making – expect more to come.

Materials: Opal, sterling silver, and 10k gold; appx 1″ diameter; 2010.
