A sterling silver, disk-shaped pendant I have carved with a dragonfly against a background of spirals. An 8x6mm, bezel-set opal is featured on the front of the piece, and on the back I have carved another, smaller dragonfly. I've applied an antique patina to highlight detail. The entire pendant, including the bail, measures 1 1/2" long by 3/4" wide (3.81 x 1.905cm) and is suspended from a diamond-cut, rolo link chain that closes with a lobster clasp.

This opal is exquisite! It has strong flashes of watermelon pink, golden yellow and bright green against a peach background, depending upon the lighting and angle in which it's viewed.

Dragonfly is one of my very favorite motifs and an insect I seem to have an affinity with: when the weather turns warm, I see them all the time on the streets in NYC, Aside from the sheer beauty of these creatures they are said to be a symbol of messages about the nature of illusion. They ask us to look at our own lives and realize what is truth and what are the illusions we have created that restrict our actions/ideas and keep us from realizing our goals. A powerful reminder.
