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.
This extra large Fire Opal pendant is approximately 45 mm x 45 mm and hangs from an 18" sterling silver snake chain. If you would like a different chain length please leave a note when checking out. Choices are 16", 18", 20", 22" and 24".
Each bead is individually made by me! There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. Each bead is 4 - 8 layers of glass. Around layer 3 I roll the bead in fine silver leaf, then encase it in more glass. When the bead is large enough I mash it flat so that the silver disperses. This is what gives my beads the shimmering sparkle. This will light up a room and bring you oodles of compliments.
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.
