Silver Compass with Beautiful Opal
There are so many colours in this opal. The more you move it around, the more you discover. An irresistible mix of blues and turquoise gives a surprise splash of beautiful greens and fiery red.
It’s a gemstone that reminds me how shining a little bit of sunlight can illuminate things we couldn’t see before, waking us up to new possibilities. As a partner to the working compass inside it could be a talisman for new directions in life.
I loved making this multi-level design which includes gold accents, detailed filigree and a mix of textures. As ever, it was tempting to keep it for myself as it emerged from the polishing stage.
Working and Waterproof Compass Pendant
The compass inside is pretty special. Really early on in my time making compass jewellery I discovered that the base compass needed customising to make it waterproof. It’s one of the best button compasses you can find and you can read about how I made this the ultimate compass of quality.
