A number of designers have been introducing new jewelry lines centered around the stone. One such designer is Laurie Kaiser of Laurie Kaiser Jewelry (you can read my original Feature Friday Q&A with Laurie here). With many of her designs reminiscent of flora itself, opals are a perfect compliment.

So when this stunning delivery from Laurie showed up on my porch; to say that I was 'thrilled' would be an understatement! The new line from Laurie is her "Diamonds in the Stream" collection, featuring one of my favorite stones - the Boulder Opal. I'll let you see if you can figure out why!
|This stunning 30" necklace goes with everything from a t-shirt & jeans to the perfect little white summer dress.|
|What is so stunning about the Boulder Opal is how it just seems to glow in the sunlight. I love the way that Laurie has mixed |
the softness of the opal with that little bit of 'edge' from the oxidized sterling silver chain!
|The extra bit of sparkle this necklace needed is the stunning little diamond...like a diamond in the midst of a clear tidal pool.|
