    Notes:
    This gem was cut by me from rough I got in 2000. It is crystal Mintabi mine opal with very good color and no crazing. This part of my primitive pendant line. Simple and functional and built to last. Everything is hand made from the base, to the bezel, to the bail.. I think this is a very lovely but simple pendant. I made one like this for my 17 year old daughter and she wears it all the time. It is simple but lovely.. I am seeing my quality of work improve with each pendant and ring; but it is not what it used to be 18 years ago when I made a lot of custom handmade jewelry .. But I do see light at the end of the tunnel.
