Opal Feather


From a sea-bird, a gift from my dear friend Laurie Brown...

Ah, but the opal is one I cabbed myself from a preform: there is a rawness to it
that I cannot resist: there is a rich crag in the side where I decided not to keep going into the stone:
you can cut and polish an opal until you wear off its fire:
no way was I going to do that with one as rich and high-domed as this -
a bit of nature in the polish, I love that.

A few precious drops of Arizona turquoise and voila, a complete statement of
love and freedom.


In the works: a stunning Montana Agate Hammer-Engraved Wing.

Ooof, I get lost in that stone....

Both pieces (though one is still being made!) are available for reserve

with a simple
