Artist Marta Pia hand makes this in the U.S, and due to the nature of this process some pieces might present some small variations, which in our opinion makes them even more unique and personal. 

Opal is hydrated silicon dioxide - submicroscopic silica spheres bonded together with water and additional silica. Because of it's play of color, it was considered by all in the ancient world to be the most bewitching and mysterious of gems, worn for its virtues of soothing and strengthening the sight, healing diseases of the eyes, and capable of providing great luck, as it possessed all the virtues of the gemstones whose colors reside within it.  In Greek mythology, opals were considered the stone form of the tears that Zeus wept after the defeat of the Titans, whereas Indian lore considered it part of the Goddess of Rainbows after she turned to stone to avoid the romantic advances of other gods. The opal used is mined in Australia, the main producer of opal worldwide.

Artist Marta Pia comes from a Spanish-Danish family with a soft spot for various creative outlets such as painting, sculpture and industrial design.  With a respect and appreciation of the challenge and beauty of artisanal manufacturing, she strives to create works where their final outcome is  based on materials and forms rather than on their final purpose, thinking about the meaning that objects acquire depending on their context, and value their ability to serve their purpose while looking timeless and effortless.
