opal

Jewerly and Waxes

I thought people might find it interesting to see the carved waxes and the final metal jewelry.

Below are photos of waxes and the finished metal and stone designs. They were made for Rebecca Burgess, who took the photos. The ring is opal 14kt and diamond.








The pendant is opal and 14kt. Both of the opals are lightening ridge opal form Australia that were cut for me. The pendant stone is more brilliant then appears in the photo. It's one of the opals that changes as you move.






I had a excellent Thanksgiving with my daughters and am planning on left over turkey etc for dinner tonight.
