Up for sale is a beautiful natural Ethiopian opal piece artfully wrapped in a 14kt gold tension wire wrap. This stunning piece is beyond compare and the pictures hardly do it justice. The glowing translucent stone is radiant with flashes of red, green, and yellow fire that consume the entire piece jumping out at the eye with the slightest movement. To top it off are the swirling waves of glowing 14kt gold that securely grasp the stone and set it off to perfection. An exquisite piece for any collection!
Metaphysically, Ethiopian Opals are excellent crystals to use for psychic development. They may be used in meditation to help to boost the ability to see the future, also known as precognition. These stones have excellent metaphysical attributes that help you to change how you think and may assist with making decisions. They are beneficial to use to boost creativity, have a good energy for balancing the chakras, and are excellent healing stones that may aid the healing of a number of health worries including helping weight related issues.
My wire work is all done by me in a tension forging technique using a hammer and anvil. I have been using this technique for almost 17 years with great results. I call it tension forging because all that holds the piece securely in the wrap is the tension of the wire. It is a single piece of wire and there is no glue or solder added making it exceedingly organic while still remaining very secure.
Photos: I try to give a good idea of the piece that you are buying, so I always take two photos. The first photo is in natural light and the second photo is under LED lights. That way you have an example of what the piece looks like in multiple lighting situations. This is also why the two photos do not always match but it is always of the same piece of jewelry.
