My grandmother died on New Year''s Day and we both have birthdays in October. She always liked the fact that we shared birthstones. She left me a drop opal pendant that I think is kind of unique. It has a gold "cap" with a swirly design and then a teardrop shaped part that looks like it is filled with some sort of clear oil. It has crush opal in it that float around. I tried to capture the flashes of color from the opal pieces but I couldn''t, so this photo doesn''t do the pendant justice. Anyway, I wanted to share because I love it and it''s very sentimental.
