We have been offering opal beads for many years now, but recently someone asked for some very special
'focal' beads for the pendant of a necklace.
So we answered the request by having some really fabulous opal cut very carefully just for such 'focal points'.
Cutting opal into beads is already a 'wasteful' process. You would just cringe at the loss of material !
But this was a challenge that we couldn't resist.
Scroll down if you can :) and feast your eyes on some lovely pics of the first of these offerings.
