"Opal" comes from the Sanskrit word upala, which means "precious stone." This comes from the stories from ancient India, which said the Mother Goddess changed the virgin Goddess of the Rainbow into a stone to save her from the amorous attentions of three gods. The word was adopted in Latin during Roman times as opalus.
Ethiopian opal is believed to be an emotional intensifier, enhancing the true nature of those who wear it. Some say it strengthens the will to live and shields the wearer against negativity, burning off karma. Practitioners of energy work say it activates the base and sacral chakras, although other base colors of this opal can be used with corresponding chakras if needed.

All pieces are created and designed by me. All stock bracelets are made to fit a standard 6" wrist. Some designs I can adjust the size without taking the whole bracelet apart and others I can add a couple of jump rings that will make it work if your wrist is not much bigger than 6", in this case I can adjust the size at no extra charge. Contact me and I will walk you through how to measure your wrist correctly so we get a perfect fit.
