The Magic of Opals
Posted by brenda mcdermott on
I love opals! I received my first opal from my boyfriend when I was 16 years old. I would have bought the ring for myself if he didn’t surprise me with it. I had my eye on it for weeks and just knew I had to have it. I still have that ring, and I am nowhere close to being 16 any longer.
Perhaps my passion for opals was the reason that one of my first jewelry designs after a long hiatus was the necklace I named "Tranquility." It was the first piece that I sold to a customer. What made it extra special was that she purchased it immediately after I showed it to her, so this confirmed for me that I absolutely nailed the design!
