This sterling silver pendant necklace has an earthy, rustic vibe and is accented with organically-shaped natural turquoise nuggets. Bold and unique, it resembles an ancient relic unearthed in an archeological dig. I created the pendant out of solid sterling silver sheet; hammered and stamped the metal for texture; then added a few pierced holes for a primitive effect. The silver was oxidized to enhance the detail; then steel brushed for a rustic sheen. It is signed on the back with my initials and the sterling stamp.
MEASUREMENTS: Total length: 2-7/8" from top of sterling silver bail to bottom of pendant and 1-1/2" in width. It comes on a 20" stainless steel rope chain with lobster claw closure. Stainless steel is rust-resistant, durable and will not tarnish. It is also a great alternative for people that have skin reactions with other types of metals.
NOTE: Please refer to measurements above. Photos are enlarged to show details.
All my jewelry is my own original design and handcrafted by me in the USA.
