How its made:

Our unique metal textures are created by a metalsmithing process called fusing. Each piece of sterling silver is hand-cut and carefully placed with tweezers onto a sterling silver 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 pieces fuse to the base. This creates a unique look but also provides superior durability and texture to the piece. The final steps involve traditional metalsmithing techniques of soldering, sanding, drilling, adding a patina, polishing, and stone setting.

Other Information:

* Similar to Boulder opal, opalized palm wood is a vein of opal that forms in between fossilized wood from a palm tree. The environmental conditions need to be just right for the opal crystals to form, which occurs over a span of thousands of years.
