Lightening Ridge Opal & Diamond Pendant Necklace
Gold, Silver & Stone Necklace
Created by Karin Jacobson
I used a combination of casting, fabrication, and folding to create this pendant. The metals are recycled sterling silver (oxidized), 14k rose gold, and 22k yellow gold. The artist started by soldering 14k rose gold wire along the outer edge of the larger flower shape, and then folded the larger and smaller flowers before joining them. In the center of the smaller flower shape is a 2mm, .025ct Harmony recycled diamond (G-I color, SI clarity) set in rose gold, and dangling from the pendant is a .65ct Lightening Ridge opal from Australia, set in 22k yellow gold on sterling silver. It is available on a 16", 18", or 20" oxidized sterling silver cable. Pendant is 1.75"L, 1.5"W.
