Opal Pendant

This is an amazing opal triplet that I was lucky enough to find, set in gold with a diamond. It's from the collection of Rebecca Burgess. I wanted a very particular balance in the designto set off the stones.

Actual size is about 1" in height.

I've finished an Ethiopian opal pendant that I'll be putting up a photo of this week.  And I've finished the wax carving an opal owl that's sitting in bare branches with winter fruit.  It's been an extravagant week for opals.
