This is an artisan necklace made of fine silver. The pendant measures approx. 2 x 1-1/2 inch. With its beaded and crystal bale, it hangs down approx. 2-1/4 inch. The chain is 18 inches long.
The outer heart is fine silver. The crystals are Swarovski. The chain and wire are solid sterling silver. The beads are sterling silver plate.
This pendant was designed, then formed by hand. Once dried, it was perfected with tiny sanding files and jewelry tools. I then carefully fired it with a hand torch. The final stages consist of brushing, burnishing, and polishing the metal, then adding the beads, chain, and crystals.
The final product is 99.9% pure, fine silver. Fine silver is durable and resists tarnish better than sterling silver. Fine silver is also eco friendly as the silver is reclaimed from the photographic industry.
