My fascination with Italian cathedrals and churches doesn’t appear to be fading any time soon. An old postcard of Genova’s Chiesa dell’Annunziata interior provided the inspiration for the earrings above and a piece of dendritic agate with pink opal sparked a hunt for matching opal pendants. I could only find a limited amount, but it was worth the long search!
