after the absence of a few days from the shed and a few weeks since I could work it regularly, today has been pure bliss.
A whole day dedicated to jewellery. I decided that I would set the opal into a delicate pendant. I don't always do delicate but today was special. I wrapped the lightning ridge opal in 18ct yellow gold and suspended a sparkly white sapphire underneath. It works like a dream.
The photo is of the pendant in it's raw state before polishing as this one is gonna need a hallmark.
