Tarkine Man Necklace


Today I assembled some more of the Opals left-overs into a necklace which I've called "Tarkine Man" - like he's a prehistoric being from the wilds of Tasmania.
The casts are moulded from a Krafty Lady Art Mould called Petroglyph (AM023) using up some previously melted Opals from an earlier project. I added Pearl Ex to this batch and it created some interesting variations in colour. Some simple beading, silver jewellery findings and blue/green glass beads work really well with the Macquarie and Tarkine Opals.
