I was inspired by the amazing color and flash of this pipe opal to adorn it with cascading tendrils of fringe. Delicate semi-precious gemstone beads were wrapped one by one to form a pendant sparkling with color and irresistible movement.
The solid pipe opal is from Queensland, Australia and weights 12 carats. The full pendant with cascading fringe measures 1 1/4 inches wide and 2 3/4 inches long. The argentium sterling silver neckwire adjusts from 15 to 17 inches.
Stones in the fringe include: swiss blue topaz, apatite, tsavorite garnet, chrysoberyl, mandarin garnet, pink sapphire and tanzanite. Metal is argentium sterling silver.
