I create my own pendants Alaska one at a time , no duplicates. In most cases I find my own raw materials, rocks wood fossils and prepare cut them myself. Most of my findings I custom cast. Brass and bronze are from old barge propellers. Copper is from antique copper water pipes from when they were made of solid copper. Bails are soldered shut. I began making pendants in 1965. I have created over 10,000 in my lifetime.

Pendant opal fish
Nice showy piece, high end lab opal with silver setting and stylized custom cast fish cap. 2 x 1 inches. Natural opal of this size quality does not exist, and if so would be thousands of $. This is real opal, just created in a lab at an affordable price. Usually suck opal is for small accents. Unusual to see it as such a large centerpiece. Chain bail on back of fish.
