    I've been looking very hard for pieces of Rhoda Wagers work, I'm hoping this is the one. Hi Jewels1900 or Kiwipaul can you verify that it could be her work, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. This is such a beautifully made pendant and the opal ( which I think is a boulder opal) is so pretty, on the back there is Sil which I presume is for silver. It is extremely well made and heavy. I don't think I can say anything else, I'm going to let the photos do the talking
    Many thanks for looking.

      It's lovely Jean and a great opal.

      It is pretty! On the back there is an S Sil I'm sure that's sterling silver. I don't know about the maker. Sometimes it feel like you just know who it's made by but just can't figure it out...it can get frustrating. Luckily there are places this with good people!

      Thank you Scott, for passing by and leaving your great comment, I do think this is a Rhoda Wager pendant it would make my day if someone could verify it for me.

      Hi Jean, I don't know enough about the little stylistic differences between Rhoda and her niece Dorothy, and the other Australian artists who emulated them. The way the silver wire continually loops at the back is interesting and it's a lovely opal. Certainly "School of Rhoda Wager" and another cool piece to add to your (growing) collection.

      Hello, Paul, I've been looking at your post and you've been putting on some lovely pieces. I'm a great lover of opals and your write ups have been brilliant. Thanks for your comment above its much appreciated.

      Hi Jean, nice bit, but again not by either of the Wagers. There are a few ways to tell. Firstly the bale is a commercial style, secondly, the design is too loose - the Wagers set their leaves and ball work much closer together, thirdly the swirly structure on the back is not consistent, the Wagers used to create a very neat geometric structure to set the leaf work on. Finally, it's marked silver - Rhoda marked with Wager, Dorothy usually not at all. I'm not aware that they every used a silver stamp.

      You're getting a good collection now!

      Hi Jewels1900, thanks for your comment, it's interesting that I can't seem to get a Rhoda Wager piece. May be next time I might be lucky. Thanks for your comment, I really appreciate your help. I wish you and your family all the best for the festive period.
