The Opal is a gemstone with small points of shifting colour against a pale or a dark background. Those that are found in Ethiopia are named the Ethiopian opal and these neck pieces are inspired by them. The Opal Series was inspired by the darkness of the Opal gem and the way its spectacular play-of-colour glistens in a variety of patterns throughout. The neck pieces in the Opal Series follow this trend of splashes of colourful patterns on a black background and these patterns of colour are attained through the use of colourful fabric on the neckpiece. The Opal Series is a sub section of the Popego Series.
