Inspiration | White African Opal Necklace by Jess Prill
Posted by Dakota Stones to Articles

When I first looked at these Matte White African Opal beads I thought they looked ancient. I wanted to capture the feeling of something that may have been found on an archeological dig.

I have an inspiration cabinet full of trinkets and goodies that I use to meditate on design ideas. For this necklace design I focused on some old roman glass bottles, brass rings and ancient coins.

I ended up pairing the Dakota Stones 8mm Matte White African Opal Rounds with old African glass and brass beads from my personal stash.
