Monarch Opal Ornate Pendant in Sterling Silver
I'm over the moon for this pendant! The opal itself is beautiful, but the symmetrical stamped adornments and the 3 dimensional Moroccan-inspired tear drop make this pendant unique and stunning. All components are made from 24 gauge sterling silver sheet & stamped, sawed out & sanded by hand. The tear drop is created with the sheet by pressing it with a steel die from India in a hydraulic press. All components are soldered to 22 gauge sterling silver sheet. Hung from an 18" oxidized sterling silver rolo chain with lobster clasp closure. The entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulphur & tumbled first with Hone & Highlight for 12 hrs and then polished by hand.
