Inspired by the Milky Way seen on a clear night, this oxidized silver and 18K gold large coin necklace will connect you to the magic of the stars, wherever you may be. The genuine Australian black opal set in 18K gold symbolizes the divine wisdom that the Universe holds.

I file the 18K gold into a dust, then fuse it onto the argentium silver disc, giving a one-of-a-kind pattern that resembles a clear night and sparkling stars.

How it's made:

Our one-of-a-kind textures are created by a metalsmithing process called fusing. 18K gold is hand-filed into dust, and is carefully spread over the argentium base. Then with a little magic, a little luck, intense concentration and careful torch control, the piece is heated just before it completely melts. It's at this point that the specs of gold fuse to the base into one piece. This creates a unique look but also provides superior durability and texture to the piece. The final steps involve traditional metalsmithing techniques of soldering, polishing, drilling, stone setting, and adding a patina to get the desired finish.
