Pink Pendant for October Birthdays by Margaret Almon


October-ites have the honor of two birthstones.  First there was the opal and then in 1952 the Jewelry Industry Council proposed pink tourmaline be added.  Opal is made of silicon and oxygen formed into spheres that organize into pockets and diffract light at different wavelengths, creating the prismatic multi-tones that make opals so intriguing.

This October birthstone inspired pendant is pale pink with a tinge of purple, rose violet gold smalti, glitter tile, iridescent glass tile, and ceramic tile, with two flower shaped Italian millefiori beads.

  1. Your mosaics are stunning! I visited your Etsy shop and have added a few items to my birthday wish list (I am an October girl).
    And I am certain Lola will grow a love for nature’s beauty. She already has an impressive fall leaf collection going. It’s just when we’re in the car and I’m going “Ooh” and “Aah”, she appears indifferent. But hey, she’s only three.
    Thanks for your visit to the Northwoods.
