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.

Re: It really is beautiful

Thanks so much River. I didn't remember that this was your first piece. That's very special. I really appreciate what you said.
