Opal Wood Half-Moon Necklace

Regular price $215.00
/

This earthy, yet contemporary necklace is made from a gorgeous piece of Indonesian opal wood cut in a half-moon shape. The stone has been set in 14k gold-fill bezel on a sterling silver base plate. It is suspended from a delicate 14k gold-fill cable chain with a handmade hook and eye clasp. Necklace is ~18” long (other lengths available upon request).

 

Indonesian opalized wood is created when wood is buried by volcanic ash and silica is mobilized from the ash, penetrating the wood and replacing the wood grains, thereby petrifying them. The silica is often accompanied by other minerals that give the stone a wide range of colors: red, green, and purple colors are usually from iron; pink, black, and brown coloration is from manganese; and blues and greens are from copper.

 

A Note About My Jewelry


I create powerful, unique, and sacred adornment crafted from Earth's finest gifts. All of my jewelry is hand-made and hand-finished, from natural and often recycled or repurposed materials. I try to use every bit of metal on my bench and not let anything go to waste. In this way, all my pieces are somehow related - melted, remelted, cut, recut, weaving together so many stories being told through the jewelry. No two items are exactly alike and my pieces will have natural imperfections - I believe it is these slight imperfections that give hand fabricated items their soulful character and appeal.
