Product Description

This is one of my newer hand-sculpted pieces.  The Opals are Welo Ethiopian white Opals with green, aqua, teal, orange, and yellow color flashes. They have smaller Garnets as accent stones.  The necklace measures 18 inches but can be shortened or lengthened upon request. The opals measure 6mm by 4mm.

The necklace is hand sculpted by me.  I use a Precious Metal Clay blend that allows the ring to have the strength of Sterling, but not the tarnishing.  I then hand-carve the designs in the metal and when happy with the design, fire it at high temperatures in a kiln.  This burns out the clay binders and leaves behind pure silver or gold.

 The 22K gold added into this design is created with Aura 22.  It is a 22K gold slip I paint on the piece and when it is fired in the kiln the gold molecularly bonds with the Silver to create a 22K plating that will never be able to come off. I then add a patina to the piece that will darken the silver in the piece.
