If you love nature, I present this hand-carved, black opal lion with a gorgeous piece of opalized wood, and marquise cut iolite set in a one of a kind sterling silver statement design. The carving alone, is a work of art itself. It was carved by an Indigenous Australian who works with my opal supplier. I find his carvings are top-notch and so inspirational! This statement piece will arrive to you on a substantial wheat chain which I chose for it's excellence in design specifically for this piece. Kinda like how when you buy a painting that has been framed by the artist, you'll never top that frame on your own... The pendant measures about 3 1/4" x 1 1/4". I have fabricated it using fine (almost pure) and sterling silver. The chain about is 20" long. I currently have a 24" chain if needed but the pendant hangs lower, so please keep that in mind.
