Rustico Necklace in Dentritic Opal -- .925 Sterling Silver Pendant Black and White Necklace
This handmade pendant is really about this beautiful dentritic opal (18mm X 26mm cabochon), hand set in bezel with minimally designed sterling silver accent around -- oxidized and left brushed -- soldered in my studio by hand by me.
I love the soft hints of markings in dentritic opal -- from pure, creamy white to cloudy grey to ink like markings of black. .925 Sterling Silver. Silversmithing and stone setting done by me in my studio -- attached chain is .925 sterling silver.
The opal is said to be many things including the most powerful of healing stones, the stone of hope, the stone of great achievement and even the "stone of the Gods". Ancient Romans associated opal with hope and good luck.
Thanks for visiting my hand crafted jewelry collection.
