This domed pendant was a one-off creation for my dear mother-in-law, who is so good to me.

A friend from circus training needed a gift for a girl about to have her bat mitzvah in the US. He wanted something that was age appropriate, timeless, and Australian without being tacky.

I designed this pendant for him, the gum leaf and the opal both being very Australian!

My lovely friend Kylie asked me if I would be able to take an opal pendant that her Nan had given her, and use the opal to make a ring.

I was very happy to try. The pendant was sweet, but just not Kylie’s thing.

I was able to get the stone out, and set it in a simple silver bezel.

I got in some tiny peridots, and we designed the ring together.

My Granny likes opals, (I created this opal ring for her a few years ago), and I wanted to create her a ring that she could wear each day.

She admired this opal ring I made a dear friend, so I thought she would like one of her own! This stone is a boulder opal, which is found only here in Queensland, Australia.

I do make more petite rings sometimes, and this pink faceted opal cabochon from my small gemstone collection was just perfect for the occasion!

My lovely son asked me to create a ring for a friend of his. Her favourite colour is pink – so what better stone?

I designed the setting to bring the pink opal away from the finger where it might otherwise be lost, but is still small enough for a dainty ring wearer! Love you my son. xx

One of my dear besties prefers a thinner smaller ring to my usual style, so as I was wondering what to make her for her birthday, I suddenly thought of this lovely opal that I bought a while ago. I loved it, but hadn’t found the right design for it.

Opal and Sterling Silver Ring

Suddenly it was clear! I created a fine setting for it, and mailed it off to my bestie.

I hope she continues to love it and enjoy wearing it! Happy birthday dearest Soph!

Jeff contacted me to see if I could create a pendant using an opal that he got in the opal fields.

The pendant was to be a birthday gift for his wife.
