A Rainbow of Multi Color lab created Fire Opal Channel Inlay Butterfly Pin Pendant Combination by revered Native American Zuni Silversmith Emma Edaakie. Her work is so much fun to wear. With all the brilliant colors used it is sure to bring a smile even on a dreary day. Meticulously cut Channel Inlay with a wonderful balance and use of color.
Lab created Opal commonly referred to as Fire Opal in Native American Jewelry is preferred over natural Opal particularly for intricate Inlay work as it is stronger and more durable than natural Opal giving you a finished piece that will last forever. The colors remain brilliant, are not effected by the elements and not easily damaged. These are solid cuts rather than doublets and triplets of Opal that become prone to loosing their luster because the sliver of Opal separated from the base setting.
Pin Pendant Combination measures approximately 1 5/16 inch (just over 1 1/4 inch) overall top to bottom and 1 7/16 inch (just nder 1 1/2 inch) at widest point across.
Butterflies represent Everlasting Life, Transformation, Spring and Renewal.
