Australian Boulder Opal Necklace
Measurements: Pendant is 1.75" X 1". The chain is 24". Handcrafted by Shirley Woodcock-Kolb. Chrysoprase and sterling silver filigree necklace on a 18" chain. I incorporate fused glass, precious metal clay, stones and porcelain into my fabricated designs, and especially enjoy doing my own lapidary work. Although I have many standard designs, my work is always changing and progressing as I find myself drawn to new challenges. I developed my distinctive filigree technique through experimentation, beginning with a silver baby cup that was given to me and that I recycled into a bracelet. My silver and gold also comes from a reputable refinery that was formerly located in New York State, and features Harmony recycled materials.
