I recently spent some time in the studio playing with crushed Gilson opal, which is compatible with borosilicate glass. This pendant has a lot of sparkle, both from a shimmery base glass (an ambery color with hints of greens and purples, depending on the light source) and a smattering of crushed Gilson opal encased in the glass. The edges of this butterfly are a soft green, along with dot detail in white and a deep teal.

The opal gives an iridescent confetti effect, gently shimmering when it moves. It's a challenge to photograph, but I hope the multiple angles give you an idea of the effect.

The pendant comes ready to wear, strung on a length of black cotton cord. It measures 60mm x 43mm, with a 3-4 mm loop behind the top right wing.
