There is so much glitz and sparks in opalized doublets. Unlike most common opals that are white or cloudy in the base color, opalized doubles are a beautiful shade of blue. Added to the blue background are vibrant pink, blue, and yellow flashes of color. The beads in the coiled top of the bookmark are faceted glass beads in blue, iridescent, and fuchsia to complement the sparks in the stone.
I oxidized the copper to an exquisite patina, adding depth and contrast of color in the metal. I then tumbled the bookmark with Steele shot; this strengthens the piece and adds a high gloss to the copper.
