A stunning freeform oval opal is delicately wire-wrap set as the centerpiece of this necklace.
Why Opal?  Because opal has the colors of other gems, the Romans thought it was the most precious and powerful of all. The Bedouins believed that opals contained lightning and fell from the sky during thunderstorms.
When Australia’s mines began to produce opals commercially in the 1890s, it quickly became the world’s primary source for this October birthstone.

Using an age-old wire-wrapping technique reminiscent of Victorian filigree, Dana Kellin took wire and stones to create something extraordinary.

Dana's intricate and original method of wire-wrapping has only been perfected by a select group of in-house artisans. Time-consuming and painstakingly precise, it is more like a labor of love than a craft.
