Monarch Opal Raven Pendant in Sterling Silver
The most amazing raven cabochon cut from blue/green monarch opal (a cultured, man made opal) stands perched on a cast sterling silver branch. In the distance, shines a sparkly full blue moon (quartz druzy). The sterling silver setting is cut completely by hand from 20 gauge sheet. 2 layers of the sheet lie behind the raven. Pendant measures 2 1/4" tall x 1 3/8" wide. A dotted bail is soldered at top. Strung on a 2.2mm 18" sterling silver rolo chain, finished with a lobster clasp closure. The entire piece has been oxidized in liver of sulphur and then polished to bring out the bright highlights of the silver.
