Thanks to a customer, I am able to work with these beauties!
These special cut opals will become a pair of earrings and a pendant, everything in 14ct gold, recycled from old jewelry pieces.
Firstly, melt everything, that’s one of my favorite part in the process of recycling gold and silver. Seeing the transformation from solid to liquid, and liquid gold is beautiful.
Secondly, from the newly melted gold, I’ve made a plate of 0.8mm from which I’ve drawn the frog shape and cut them.
Thirdly, I’ve soldered the prongs at the required places.
Later this week I will continue with adding the post on the back of the earrings, diamond and bail on the pendant.
