Black Opal Pendant
Australian opal & diamond pendant I made in 18K & 22K. Height 1.5 inches. Opal was about 8 carats. I carved the scroll pieces and pendant bail in wax, cast them as individual parts, then fabricated the piece. Waxes of the scroll pieces were hollowed in back to reduce overall pendant weight. Hammer textures with engraved and satin finishes completed the design. One of the most striking opals I've ever worked with.
