Curio Monarch Opal Mushroom Pendant in Sterling Silver
The most adorable mushroom cabochon cut from lavender/pale green monarch opal (a cultured, man made opal) is set in a "shadow box", framed on 4 sides by cast sterling silver twigs. Behind the mushroom lies the base, cut completely by hand from 20 gauge sterling silver sheet. A cast silver twig constructs the bail. Pendant measures 1 1/2" tall x 1" wide. Strung on a 1.9 mm 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.
