These amazing Dendritic Opal stones have the most gorgeous swirls of color and dendrite in them! I love these. The hooks are made from Niobium which is hypoallergenic and safe for most metal sensitivities.
This pair is a little toward the heavy side.
The length of the earring from the bottom of the hook to the bottom of the earring is about 1.75 inches.
How Its Made: Each stone is handpicked to meet my standards of excellent quality. Ring bands and many other connective parts are hand formed and are then sculpted onto the stone with a permanent epoxy. In the areas where I would like metal to be, I paint each piece with an electrically conductive paint. The next step is to put a removable, protective covering on all stones. The necklace will then go through a process where it is submerged into an acid bath and the areas with the conductive paint will begin to grow a super strong layer of 100% pure copper. This growth process takes 12 - 36 hours for each piece and is monitored during the process. After this is done, each piece is one by one hand polished, cleaned, oxidized, polished again, and then given a clear protective coating.
