Wire knit Cantera opal pendant with pearls by CatsWire Wire knit Cantera opal pendant with pearls by CatsWire
Mexican Cantera opals are the equivalent to Australian Boulder opals. They are polished with the matrix which is called cantera.
This one has a little window in the cantera through which you can see the amazing opal colors. I love this stone!
I set it in a bezel knitted from warm golden copper wire with a crochet hook and added tiny pink freshwater seed pearls that pick up the color of the cantera.

A friend said she was reminded of a dragon's egg about to hatch. I bet a dragon from this egg would look just beautiful.

Sold.

It usually takes around seven to ten days, rarely longer. I also had them arrive after five days, but those are exceptions.

It is so gorgeous! I love the wire and details creating such a nice framework for the stone, it looks like it is hatching.

Thank you so much, also for the fave and watch! To be honest, this must be one of my own favorite pieces ever ... to think that I've had the stone around for about a year because I was waiting for an inspiration!

You're welcome, that piece is just stunning. I have stones that I hold onto for special stuff too, so I understand. Its final form is spectacular though, *thumbs up*
