Opal Rainey Nouveau Pendant
This one-of-a-kind pendant features a beautiful tiny Lightning Ridge Opal. This teardrop stone has been bezel set (wrapped in silver) and framed in geometric textured stamping to compliment the stone. With an oxidised background (blackened) the vibrance of this tiny stone shows to its full advantage. It is difficult to capture the exact colour of opals, they change depending on the natural light, and have iridescent colour. These are subtle stones but they have flecks of red, greens and golds in the opals. This pendant has a separate hanging little diamond concho beneath the opal. The design was inspired by my enduring love of elegant Art Deco’s sleek geometric forms combined with some Art Nouveau long sinuous organic lines all combined with a little romance. Named for a famous singer from the roaring 20’s, I think this pendant would have been very much at home in that era.
This piece was incredibly enjoyable to create. Layering, hand-stamping, sawing, texturing, soldering, and polishing are just some of the steps taken to bring it to life. Each process done with care and accuracy to create a wearable work that will last a lifetime.
