Definitely something to treasure. As much as they say that opals are unlucky, I would wear this ANY day! :D

Just about anything is unlucky to the right person:( I still don't believe this with opals. If it were true I would have terrible luck and that's not the case:)

How did you achieve the metal's elegant shape? Did you use the lost wax technique?

No.. I used hand fabrication techniques. This pendant was actually a piece I did for a step-by-step project in Lapidary Journal's Jewelry Artist magazine. You can see some of the photos and piercing techniques I used on the blog I have posted on Xanga~

This piece is simply gorgeous. I saw it in Jewelry Artist/ Lapidary Journal and had that "gee, I wish I could do that!" thought (after I did the :drool: over the opal, of course). :D Fabulous job - and congrats on being featured! :clap:
