Moonstone and Opal Necklace


Moonstone and Opal Moon Necklace.  Made using traditional metalsmith techniques. I added a crescent moon face with a star by the Opal and two granulated silver balls above the Moonstone. I hand sawed a tiny hole and a larger hole in the back to let light shine through for the Welo Opal and the Moonstone.  Both stones have a nice flash of color in them. The opal changes from blue to yellow, so it can represent a blue moon or the sun, depending on the light. Hand stamped on backside with makers mark and Sterling.  The pendant measures a little over 2-1/2” (65mm) from the top of the two hanging rings to bottom of pendant.  Hangs through the two rings on a sterling silver Rolo chain finished to your length and closes with my hand formed hook clasp. Silver has been textured and given a dark patina to highlight the earthy design.  A very unique artisan design that will be a treasured heirloom.
