In the Middle Ages, opal was considered a stone that could provide great luck because it was believed to possess all the virtues of each gemstone whose color was represented in the color spectrum of the opal. My version of the opal will bring you lots of luck as there are flashes of all the colours of the rainbow in there. This is a bead that will change and flash and sparkle.
Each bead is individually made by me! Each bead measures approximately 14mm x 14mm. They hang on sterling silver ear wires for a total length of approximately 40 mm.
My hands made these beads. I use Moretti (Effetre) glass, a little CIM and occasionally Vetrofond. All my beads are kiln annealed, thoroughly cleaned and inspected. There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass.
Please note that each fire opal earring is made one by one. There will be slight variations. All are lovely.
Please remember the jewelry looks larger than life in the pictures which is why it is important to check the size. I have tried to capture the colours as accurately as possible but many monitors vary.
