Handmade Hope Necklace Sterling Silver Stamped with Lobster Clasp
The world needs a little more HOPE ~ To create this necklace, I stamped the word "hope" using a subtle script stamping set, and cut the shape from a sheet of sterling silver. After polishing the piece by hand and in the tumbler, I antiqued the surface to bring out the letters. I took the front back to a high polish though it still has a hint of antiquing on it. This focal has a lot of character from being handmade.
To complete the necklace, I used handmade sterling silver jump rings to attach to lengths of sterling oval rolo chain. The necklace is held with a sterling lobster clasp, also attached with handmade rings. All components are sterling silver. I've added two coats of jewelers wax to help protect the shine on the pendant. Necklace length is 17". I will add a 1" matching sterling silver extender at no cost if you request on checkout (to allow the necklace to also be clasped at 18").
As with all my carefully handcrafted jewelry, this high-quality necklace will come packaged in a recycled paper jewelry box and padded mailer. First Class postage includes tracking, which I notify you of upon shipping. Please review my Policies page for full details on purchasing from this shop.
