David uses the finest Australian Boulder Opal from Queensland and New South Wales. The opals hand selected by David offer an endless variety and intensity of colour. In contrast with our faceted work, the opals are organic and fluid. Similarly to all other pieces created by David, no two pieces are the same.
Australian Boulder Opal is natures glue, occurring naturally within rock. It is an enigma: it is so thin, yet so deep in colour and interest. David is sensitive to colour ways and contours of each individual piece of opal, and his designs emerge as he develops an understanding of each individual opal.
Opal is viewed by some as bringing bad luck, or being overly fragile. We know that it is a fabulous stone to use in jewellery, and can be worn with confidence when the wearer has an understanding of the nuances of this beautiful material.
