Hayalite and Opal

I've been working on a complicated design problem for a while. It's a ring with a asymmetrical hyalite triangle and a long narrow brilliant opal with a lot of red flash. Hyalite is a form of opal with a glassy and clear appearance. This one is white and shot with brilliant lights.

The shapes are not naturally compatible and so the design difficulty. But I've solved it with a ring design that creates a balance and harmony with the two stunning stones. I still need to do a fair amount of work and carved textures on it but the essential design problem is solved.

Pendant is sterling "world" with a blue chalcedony satelite crossing it.  From the collectionof River Curtis-Stanley.

I'm ging back to carving.

It's even more beautiful in life. Lloyd Eshbach cut it years ago.

I really want to see that ring when it's done.

It sounds marvelous, both in form and flash, and you know how I go for statement pieces. :-)
