Crafted of solid 14k yellow Gold, our Firefly amulet holds a glowing opal seemingly-endless flashes of color encapsulated in our signature inverted bezel setting. A unique design inspired by a Teresa and Brie's connection to nature and their forest walks, this pendant exudes all that is sublime in the outdoors. The golden Firefly is enhanced by the dark shades of the oxidized silver and black enamel in the crevices. A golden, mystical amulet to connect one with all things magical about summer nights and the beloved little bioluminescent beetle in the Lampyridae family.
Size: The handcrafted Firefly, including the gemstone is approximately 3/4" long. This phosphorescent beetle is created on a oxidized and left blackened (antiqued) 18" oval cable link chain with T and Brie's handcrafted 14k Gold graceful Hook and Eye Clasp, or it can be crafted with a Lobster Claw style clasp, your choice. The chain lengths include the clasp; other lengths available, please see the menu.
The gem: Shown set with T and Brie's signature upside down set gemstone, shown here a glowing Opal, displaying flashes of green to blue to bright orange as the gem moves, completing the body of this diminutive member of the beetle family of insects, Lampyridae, with it's beloved flashing "lantern". Opals are a birthstone for those born in the month of October.
"We are inspired by details of our surroundings and Nature is a constant source of inspiration. Our interest in and reverence for the long history of jewelry and body adornment in different cultures and time periods informs our design choices. We explore, examine and sketch our observations of intriguing elements in our surroundings, be it forest, shoreline or city. We strive to distill an essence of these aspects in the final designs; in doing so we create personal talismans for the wearer, engaging a connection with a beloved connection."----Teresa and Sabrine, designer, crafters, T and Brie
