N°708 The Blue Opal Antidote for Everything Statement Necklace

Every piece is made to order and may take 2 to 7 business days to be shipped. Having said this, most pieces are shipped within 2 days.

Let me introduce you to an intriguing type of Opal which you may have never come across before - Owyhee Blue Opal. Tis gemstones has only recently (2003) been discovered near the sacred Indian springs of Owyhee in  Oregon. Its colour palette ranges from rich sky blue to black and translucent (depending on the level of oxidation) and it is regarded as the rarest form of opal. It is the stripy patterns - that feel like a unique fingerprint of each and every bead that first made me fall in love with this unbelievable gemstone. Mixed with its "sister stone" Kyanite, with which it shares that same blue hue, tiny Russian Aquamarines, Brazilian & African Agates & ample Turkish silver-plated parts, this piece is serious eye candy.

If there was a "sister fabric" to Owyhee Opal it would be denim-they are made for each other! As for my inspiration for this piece - it came from our beach in form of the tiny hydroid colony Porpita Porpita (see below) with its solid central floating device and the most delicate colony of polyps. Both a marine biologist & jewellery designer's dream!

Like all our pieces, it is handcrafted with love and care in our studio near Byron Bay. These eclectic limited-edition statement earrings are made from the following semi-precious stones and findings

  • Kyanite from Jaipur, India
  • Owyhee opal from USA
  • Aquamarine from Russia
  • Pearls from Shanghai
  • Agates from Brazil
  • Interlocking vertebrae Agate beads from Ghana
  • Quartz from Hong Kong
  • Silver-plated beads from Bali, pendant from Istanbul
  • 1/10 limited edition
  • length: short necklace, inner strand 43cm long (stretched out) - can be extended via extender chain to 57cm. If you are really small or need a larger version - please leave notes in the instruction field as you checkout.

 

The Blue Opal Antidote for Everything Statement Necklacewill be beautifully gift-wrapped and ready as an exceptional gift for yourself or an unexpected gift for someone special. We to make each piece as closely as possible to the one shown in the image. However, since we are working with natural stones, each piece is a little bit different and that's just the way we like it.

When I opened my beautifully wrapped package, I was absolutely blown away by this gorgeous necklace of stripy blues. Each stone looks brighter in real life than in the photos. I could easily wear it every day, as it’s truly ‘an antidote for everything’. Thank you Kirsten!

Every new piece from Luka becomes my No.1 and later, well, you shouldn't have a favourite child but - this silver and blue sister of denim truly touched my heart. You've done it again Kirsten - beautiful necklace I've felt comfortable with since the first moment, thank you!
