    Wow! You had another one of those opals??? Did you steal them or something??? LOL! This is absolutely stunning, and I love how you finished off the base of the stone. What gauge wire did you use?

    ROTFLOL Sue, you are soooooo funny! Have to admit, though, when I saw she had a second one….. ;-)

    Very nice. Your wirework, especially at the bottom, is beautiful! :)

    Thank u, Chicky LE

    Aqua Chickie Cat says:

    Thanks, C Chickie Sue; this is 20 gauge wire. And to reply to your insinuation, in these parts, the ground is covered with precious stones, but the locals only take fish ;) . I have no fish. That’s the short version

  16. Aqua Chickie Cat
    Aqua Chickie Cat says:

    Thank u Valentine Chick! I was pleased with the bottom part. It turned out just like I hoped. The top was not so cooperative, though. I had a cool looking idea for the bail, but it wasn’t practical (functional), and this big loop was the only way I could get it to hang properly. This is the first pendant I made for sale.

    Dragons Chicky says:

    Looks good enough to eat but probly a bit hard on the teeth…truly a most spectacular stone!! The wrapped loop works and looks great at the top. I’ll bet you had multiple buyers/wanters!!
