This is a relatively large pendant, which is set with a stunning Lightning Ridge black opal. The stone has a distinct vertical panel in the centre, which displays broad flashes of green whereas the outer edges of the stone predominantly flash blue. The opal is roughly triangular with a base of 1,6cm and a height of 9mm. I set this opal in an elongated, quadrangular shape, whereby the upper part reflects the triangle of the stone and the lower part complements it. The entire pendant is 4.7cm high (including the hanger) and 4.7cm wide, by which I hope to have achieved an optically pleasing balance. The back is hallmarked for Sterling Silver, Edinburgh 2018.
