This pendant by jeweler extraordinaire and ANC subscriber Janine Hall is the star piece of ANC’s first online auction. (Click here to read the entire back story about the gorgeous pendant that Janine created especially for this auction. )
This stunning piece was hand-crafted by Janine, one of the north-state’s most notable jewelers at her studio at Janine’s Jewelry in downtown Redding. Like many of the items created by artists for this online auction, Janine designed this pendant with the Carr Fire in mind. It features a fire opal, melted edges, and has a flame that stars in the center of the piece.
The pendant is 14-kt. yellow gold, and features 2.5 carats of gorgeous opal, and .22 carats of three diamonds. It’s absolutely exquisite and includes its special exotic-wood box that Hall ordered just to contain this spectacular pendant.
This piece already has an opening bid of $1,000 by an anonymous bidder.
Thank you, Janine Hall, for this extraordinarily generous gift to benefit a young graduating Carr Fire survivor.
Opening bid: $1,000

About Janine Hall
Janine Hall has had a lifelong passion and fascination for metal and torch work. Her early jewelry fabrication and repair education started in Burbank in 1974, and she made her way to Redding a few years later.
In 1979, Hall was given the opportunity to purchase a tiny kiosk-type jewelry shop inside of Dicker’s department store in the Mall in downtown Redding. Dicker’s is gone, and most of what was known as the mall is gone, but Hall and her shop are still there.
Over these decades Janine has fabricated from scratch thousands of one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry, and has repaired countless other pieces, including many pieces she’s restored in the aftermath of the Carr Fire. Her style is clean and sometimes leans slightly to an Art Deco look. She has also become one of the most trusted jewelers in the north state, with customers on the East Coast, in Paraguay, and even Australia. Janine’s Jewelry has a Facebook page, which you can find here. She also has an Etsy store, which you can check out here.
In Hall’s almost 40 years in business, she’s contributed to countless fund raisers with donations of jewelry and gift certificates, supporting her community.
