Techniques used

 

I work with Rough Opal directly from the mine in Australia. It is shaped by hand using diamond tools.

The mount of the ring is carved in direct cut in wax. It is then made in Argentium (Silver 925) using the lost wax casting technique.

I carry out in my workshop of Cordes-sur-Ciel in the Tarn all the operations necessary for the creation of this unique ring: sculpture, foundry, setting as well as polishing

 

Symbolic

 

In the Greco-Roman world, Opal is a powerful lucky charm. It decorated the sticks of the Roman generals. We can cite the case of Nonius, a wealthy senator who owned a hazelnut-sized opal. Marc-Antoine having seen the beauty of the gem wanted to offer it to Cleopatra. Nonius preferred exile. (CHGH)

In the East, the Opal is associated with hope. It shelters from evil and places it under divine protection. "Brahma gave it its celestial blue radiance, Vishnu the radiance of the sun and Shiva its flamboyant red" (NIMO)

 

Ancient Beliefs

 

"Women with light hair expected from the Opal an eternal happyness" (PARK)

"Who constantly feeds on black drawings and perceives the world on a negative world cannot wear an opal without his own negativity turning against him" (PARK)

"When the drought rages, we make an image of the Dragon Yin and it starts to rain" (GRAN)
