This month's birthstone comes in so many different beautiful varieties. Opal has a long history. Opals were mined at least as long ago as the fourteenth century. Mexican Fire Opal was used by the Aztecs and was brought to Europe by the conquistadors. In Roman civilization, Opal was linked with good luck and hope. An Australian legend says a gigantic Opal governs the stars, human love and the gold within the mines.
Hi there and welcome! I'm the designer and metalsmith behind Amanda K Lockrow. I've been making jewelry ever since the first metals class I took in 2001 at Syracuse University. I was drawn to so many different mediums from a young age but nothing challenged and excited me as much working in metal. When I'm not making jewelry I love exploring LA and all of California for inspiration.
I try to create jewelry with intention, love and meaning. Please send me a message if you have any questions about my work. firstname.lastname@example.org
