Romantic Pink Opal Pendant

January 10, 2010

Romantic Pink Opal Necklace

The stone at the centre of this pendant is a Pink Opal from my home province, British Columbia. This is one of several stones my mom and sister selected for me as Christmas present.

It was their idea to use polished stones like these as cabochons. Since stones are supposed to have certain healing qualities, I think it’s a fun way to reap some of those benefits. Pink Opal is supposed to bring hope, peace and tranquility — all of which sound lovely to me.

What I like about this stone is that it’s imperfect – there’s also some pink quartz in there and likely some other minerals. I drew the colour palette from the stone, using gun metal seed beads, pink seed beads, and pink pearls.
