Golden Sunstone and Thunder Opal

95.00

I finally got my hands on some Oregon Sunstone and its even more alluring than I expected. This particular stone is champagne clear with an interesting inclusion on the lower 1/3 that throws rainbows. It took such a lovely polish in an asymmetrical facet design that really allows it to glow and shine. The upper stone is a Thunder Egg Common Opal from Central Oregon that glows with its own held light in a slightly yellow-green tint. To top it all off, the Fine and Sterling Silver carved setting is treated to some 23.5k Gold Keum Boo in celebration.

The Sunstone is left open backed in its Fine Silver setting to let the light shine through. The base of the piece is custom made, mixed metal ‘Terrane’ by which Fine Silver and 23.5k Gold are sculpted and treated with Keum Boo. The bail loops are Sterling Silver as well as the hook and loop closure on the 1.5mm Greek leather cord (roughly 18”). The Sunstone was sourced in Oregon (but not found by me this time), hand polished, and the setting fabricated from scratch by Karen Britt. Each piece is a one of a kind piece of art, because no two stones are the same and the settings are created by hand, no two pieces are the same (even the earrings). It should be mentioned that all stones are used in their natural state; never dyed or heated to change their appearance. All the metals used are either recycled or fair, humane trade verified and all components used in the jewelry will return to the earth leaving no footprint. Thank you for enjoying the art.
