Rosella Opal. It finally has a name. I saw that my blog-friend Evie, had set a gorgeous pendant and called the stone by name when I realized that I had a little sackful of this material and all I knew was that it was from Australia and it was an opal. Sweet! It has a real name! I cut and polished a few for her then these for me. I know I've posted this stone before but I have to say it again - it positively glows!
I love this simple setting for earrings and whenever in doubt, this is the way i go. Easy hooks, so plain and unfussy. My new 'go to' earrings while the turquoise earrings take a break.
These are mine, all mine. Selfishly keeping them for myself.
