Boulder Opal

About this design:

I purchased this Boulder Opal in Tucson last year along with the strand of 10mm round boulder opals. I think they look great with the kynite it brings out the blue in the stones. I am gearing up for Tucson again in two weeks!! :)


Boulder Opal pendant, Boulder opal rounds, kynite, chocolate freshwater pearls, sterling silver bead caps, silver toggle from Saki Silver.
