New Opals and Finished Work

These are 2 new opals that I just got. I'm thinking about designs.

I've just finished a silver lace opal pendant for the collection of Bayla Fine with at stunning microcrystalline opal and a silver casopyrite pendat for the colection of Beth Zipser.

The casopyrite design is heavily influenced by mid twentieth century modernism and particularly by the paintings of Mark Rothko. I saw a solo exhibition of his work at MOMA in New York many years ago that moved me deeply. I can still access how strongly I felt then.

I'm photographing them tonight.

Not sure if I'll be journaling again before the holidays, so best to everyone.
