One-of-a-kind, this graduated opal beads necklace is wire-wrapped by hand, for a result that is eye-catching, light and comfortable.
The Ethiopian opal beads are faceted, and treated by smoke to enhance their dark body. They do a great job of lighting up your face in a subtle way, much like pearls do —although in a slightly funkier way.
Their dark color base comes alive as they catch the light and give out flashes of bright rainbow colors, otherwise known as an opal play-of-color. Ethiopian opals are the result of past volcanic activity and are hydrophane, or somewhat porous, and are best kept away from immersion in liquids.
Energetically, opals are great at clearing up your thoughts and help you tune in to your inner voice, making them great natural Intuition boosters.
Delphine uses 14k yellow wire to individually wrap and connect the opal beads to each other to form 10" of the necklace, in turn linked to 10" of our whisper thin chain (worn around the back of your neck).
Per your request, Delphine will add a second jump ring at 19" for versatility.
Designed and crafted in NYC.
