Wampidy, here is your design idea you requested.
« on: December 29, 2015, 08:44:32 AM »

I cannot attach a photo to a PM for you.  I don't have photobucket etc.

So here you go.

I got rid of the orangish opal - it detracted from the beautiful pink of the two half moons.  If you really really want to use it, just drill it and attach it into the design.  To me it just didn't fit, so I went over it in my drawing.

Drill your holes, make wire loops on either side of the drilled pieces, attach to each other using chain.  The preferred color is silver, gold or brass would clash with the stone.
The three loops on the bottom of the piece - Hang small beads, crystals or briolettes in white, cream, pink or silver. 

Make a tube bail with wire for the top to hang the piece from.  Use cord of choice as the necklace. 

Hope this helps.

Wow, perfect timing (been gone for a while) and sweet idea. I had doubts about the opal too but I am having trouble finding ways to mount the opals so I am trying everything.

Thank you so much for your time and brain. I really appreciate it.

No problem Jim!  I happened to find a spare half hour since both Hubby and I are sick.  When you cannot do much more than sit on your butt, you have time for a lot of "sit down" activities.
