Another custom necklace requested for the celebration of an upcoming Graduation made with large teardrop blue opals, silver, natural pearl and leather. This necklace is a Prairie Thistle original and my favorite type of necklace to design.
The luscious blue opals have this translucent quality that is amazing - they seem to glow from within.
After discussing design elements with her mother, I think these gemstones are so much like her descriptions of her daughter who has an inner light and sweet soul.
I love the simple design that let's the opals take center stage and be the true focal element of the necklace. I also like the clean lines that the brown leather cords provide, that also give the necklace a modern look and feel. This is my favorite piece of jewelry that I have designed this year.
