Weekly Challenge: Week 18 reliquary

oxidized sterling silver, raw cut opal

My aunt is down to earth, kind, lovable and has always been there for me. She's been my second mom my whole life. She's a true flower child and I didn't want this piece to lose that feel by being flashy and shiny. I went with a virtual hug, so to speak, using a tension fit around the opal. It's worn, raw and the inner beauty shines through.

Happy Birthday auntie Donna!
