Fall is my favorite time of year, and it always sparks a new surge of creativity. I've been inspired by some gorgeous new stones. My favorite new stone is some old stock Australian Dendritic Honey Opal, and I made a new ring as soon as I could! I've named it Song of the Outback, because it looks like a vista over the dry desert hills of the Australian Outback. Most of this material is usually just a deep golden yellow with a bit of black. This one, with its shades of rust and white along with the delicate lines of deep color is really special!
