Ethiopian Desert Opal & Ethiopian Welo Opal Pendant, Wire-Wrapped in Sterling s. Heather Jordan Heather Jordan Jewelry
This gorgeous, rich pendant was made with a raw, uncut Ethiopian desert opal nugget, fresh from the ground and still in it's natural matrix, was woven in solid Sterling silver wire with three fiery Ethiopian opals, set in delicate herringbone weaves. The vivid fire of the stone come to life with red, orange, yellow, green and blue patches, flashing across all exposed areas of the focal stone. All of the opals emit glittering fire with pops of blue, green, yellow, orange and red as the pendant turns in the light-- truly a delight! The wire was oxidized naturally with egg yolk, then sealed in clear lacquer to resist tarnish and protect the aged finish of the piece over time. The pendant comes suspended on your choice of chain and measures 38x27x16mm (1.5» X 1.1» X 0.6»). This is a one-of-a-kind item and there won't ever be another like it. It is rare to find welo opals set in antiqued Sterling silver because polishing is such a delicate process.

This piece comes in a luxurious, black velvet jeweler's box, contained in a cardboard outer shell (so you can wrap the box without damaging the velvet); perfect for gift-giving. This is an heirloom-quality piece you can treasure for many years to come. This ships fully-insured and with international tracking, for your convenience and peace of mind.

This is a one-of-a-kind piece and there won't ever be another. Don't let someone else snap it up first!

*Comes with a signed certificate of authenticity, filled in & signed by the artist; photo of the piece & materials are listed on the reverse side of the card.
