Another Glass Fire Opal Design
I am still enjoying my newest fascination with glass fire opals. For my newest creation I used a topaz glass opal with a rich warm mix of gold, amber and topaz colors. I created a setting for this stone using a simple round mounting which I layered with a more ornate round setting - both in antiqued brass. Czech glass beads in clear fire polish and "vintage bronze" add to the vintage style charm of this piece. A medium weight 5mm rollo textured chain gives this piece a substantial feel. Measures 18 inches long. Finished with an ornate antiqued brass pewter hook and eye clasp.
I found this stone and several of the metal components at VintageJewelrySupplies.com. Remaining components are from firemountaingems.com.
