The opal beads in this 15"-17" necklace have the colors of well known Mexican fire opal but not the translucency or "play of light" typical of precious opal. Instead, this opal would be referred to as potch opal because it's opaque without the color flashes. However, the colors of this Mexican opal - like other potch opals of blue, green and pink - are delightful. The creamy color reminded me of delicious Mexican almond wedding cookies, so good and tasting of happiness, like the cheery orange red of the opal and Swarovski crystal. The necklace can also be double-wrapped as an accompanying bracelet.

Length: necklace - 15"-17", bracelet - 7"


  • Mexican opal beads
  • Swarovski crystal beads
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver lobster clasps and extension chain
  • Soft Flex moderate duty nylon coated stainless steel cord (30 lb. load test)

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be kinked or broken through hard jerks or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or kinking cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The beads and beading cord should be robust to toddler tugs and pulls. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 15"-17" necklace works well with higher necklines like boatnecks or crewnecks and moderate scoop necks and v-necks. Deeper necklines may cause the necklace to appear out of proportion. The necklace may also be double wrapped to form a wrap bracelet that can be paired with the 7" bracelet for a triple strand look.
