Mexican Fire opal with a TON of rich red and green threaded under the surface of the stone: the camera tried so valiantly to capture it, but alas, it could not! You can see glimpses, though....
The stone of wonder is set in a hammer-formed sterling silver flower which has been given a delicious dose of ebony and features polished bright sterling dew drops....
And oh my goodness warm and smoocheriffic mookaite earrings strung on handmade ear wires... these are life-affirming in their exuberant colorful joy!!
Both the earrings and the necklace will be in the Metal Shop in a little while...
This is the last week that both shops will be open -
I will close everything down the evening of the 20th so that I may travel to the frozen tundra of Minnesota for Christmas.
Perhaps Santa will bring me a Yeti fur coat!!!
