Scenic Blue Opal Statement Necklace with handmade sterling chain
To see more of my shop click here. This stunning and rare Scenic Blue Opal is set in Sterling Silver with three decorative flowers and hand stamped texture all around. This stone has an incredible likeness of the northern California coastline surrounded by cliffs and mountains. The hammered bail is integrated with the substantial handmade chain. Handmade hook clasp and hand stamped charm attached with three green Aventurines graces the back. Truly a one of a kind statement piece.
I handmade this pendant and it’s chain from sterling silver sheet metal and sterling wire which I sawed, shaped and soldered in my Northern California studio. The decorative flower elements are made by first melting down sterling into balls, then hammering them into traditional steel molds, then trimming and polishing and soldering into place. The texturing around the bezel is made by a rare stamp found in a Paris flea market. Signed on the back with my maker’s mark, and ‘Sterling’. I patinaed the pendant to give it an aged rich look.
The pendant itself is just over 1 ¾ inches from top of bail to bottom. The chain length is 18 inches and easily adjustable to a shorter length as the hook can fit into any part of the chain.
