    It's done! Only thing was forgetting the brushed/satin finish, so he will do that on Monday. Not sure when it will come, later in the week anyway. Pics I have are before the finish obviously.

    Thanks everyone! I was hoping it would ship today but maybe tomorrow. Not sure how long it takes to do the finish on it and he was going to do that today. I'm excited to show it to gramma...seeing as how she gave the opal to me in ohhhh 2008 I think?

    David overnighted it so it should be here tomorrow. Said the finish is beautiful but wanted to get it out as soon as possible so didn't stop to take pics.

    He did satin finish on a rig for me it was lovely. I'm sure yours will be as well, nice of him to get a quick turn around for you.

    Ah, how exciting for you!
    I keep coming back to your pendant. It's so beautiful with the opal, the engraving and the special engraved text...
    Do you already have a chain necklace for it?

    Gah, no I don't have a chain yet! I better get busy and order one. Any thoughts on where to get a nice gold chain? I could go to our jewelry store in town but they're crazy expensive.

    Unfortunately I do not have any addresses for chain necklaces. I would go to town first anyway to see what size fits best with your pendant and your own preferences.

    Try ottofrei.com or riogrande.com. They are jeweler's suppliers and have pretty good prices.

    If you get it on Etsy, read the description very, very carefully. Sometimes, the titles and descriptions are misleading.

    Got it today! For now David just has it on the silver snake chain it was on originally. I've only seen it in the dark of the nap room so far haha-have to wait until kids are gone and then I will be able to see it better. I had JD bring it down to me at work.
