This amazing and ethnic-inspired opal ring is completely handmade and utilizes 2 new techniques I'm playing with- granulation and thick silver bezels. The outer wires and balls of silver were fused to the surface of the backplate using nothing but heat (no solder). Pretty nerve-wracking when making it- hoping everything fuses and doesn't fall off! But, alas, all went well and a nice hand-twisted shank (size 7) was added to the back and then the whole piece was oxidized to give it contrast and drama. The opal is Australian and you'll love the contrast with the rest of the setting- so dynamic. About 1" wide, it'll make a grand presence on your finger!
