Australian Boulder Opal & Amethyst
This is one of the many moments I wish my talents ran more to photography. The Australian boulder opal is full of hidden depths and flashes of lavender light that perfectly match the amethyst beads. I originally started to make it with hammered copper rings but the brightness of the copper distracted from the beautiful stone. The mix of brass and copper was perfect, working with the mix of light and dark, sombre and surprising.
The first picture almost captures the true colors, although it looks more bluish than the true color of purple.
This is a long necklace, but can be shortened to fit. Price is $60 CDN.
