She Flies~ Dragonfly+Cultured Sterling Opal+Citrine+Hand Fabricated Silver Layered Necklace
In some cultures the Dragonfly is a symbol of happiness, speed and purity. The dragonfly also represents transformation and life's ever constant process of change.
With that thought, I fabricated this large Dragonfly from Argentium (93.5) Silver, and set a gorgeous shimmering cultured opal (created and cut by Sterling Opal) as her body - the opal's ever-changing and shimmering colors merges with her symbolism in a beautiful way!
She hovers below three strands of cultured Sterling Opal nuggets and Citrine gemstones, and comes together with hand fabricated silver chain links and a hook clasp!
The silver is a soft antique finish. The cultured opal nugget beads are roughly 4mm, for size reference.
Strung on 8lb FireLine for durability and strength.
Total Necklace Length: 22 inches. Adjustable.
Pendant Length: 3 and 3/4 inches.
Pendant Wing Span: 2 and 3/8 inches.
This necklace is a TWO - IN - ONE! Remove pendant and wear beaded necklace alone, or place pendant on your own chain or bead strands for different looks!
About Sterling Opal:
This cultured Opal is GIA certified, lab grown here in the US, and is comprised of nano particles of silica dioxide. In order to get the GIA certification, the product must be chemically the same as the natural product. Sterling cultured Opal meets these standards. It's a beautiful, solid product, and I hope you enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoyed designing with it!!
