Handmade ~ Amethyst Druzy & Solid Sterling Silver Necklace

Details

This is a highly polished slice of natural pale amethyst, 1-9/16" wide x 1-3/16" high x 9/32' thick. It hangs by its sterling bale on sterling manufactured chain in three 2-1/4" sections, with two 1/3" lilac faceted crystal glass stations, on each side. The sterling clasp, handmade by me, is 1-1/2" long overall and 1/4" wide, with 4mm crystal accents on each side. And in all of my silver work, the sterling silver is just that - solid sterling, not the "sterling filled" we're seeing a lot of lately. Any metal labelled "filled" - be it gold or sterling - is actually a super-heavy plating, comprising just 5% of the substance; thus the phrase "1/20-14k GF" for example.

The glossy, dark strip you see across the top is the natural substrate upon which the crystals formed, spontaneously, many eons ago. It has been cleaned up and polished along with the gem structure itself; leaving some of that intact helps ensure stability of the crystal formation as presented.

It's been wire-wrapped into an integral, handmade bale of solid sterling silver ~ twisted into a (fluid & flexible-looking, yet work-hardened) rope effect ~ which could lend itself to a rodeo vibe, or not, depending how you wear it. You can wear this anywhere, with anything, from barbeques to dinner parties. It can really add *pop* to your business or office wear. It hangs about 1-1/2" to 2" below the collarbone ~ so could go over a turtleneck to hang high, or inside a lower neckline to rest directly on your skin. It's smooth and comfortable, with no scratchy parts.

This is a very distinctive piece, of which you'll never tire; it has heirloom potential.

More Info

This comes gift-wrapped in a brown kraft box bearing my brand label, with cotton box filler and designer tissue imprinted with pen-and-ink dragonfly images, and black raffia-style glossy ribbon. The ribbon will be loosely tied, so that you may inspect your purchase before presenting as a gift.

One-of-a-kind; this piece was handmade by me in my home studio, here in the Yolla Bolly Wilderness area, in the east-facing foothills of the Mendocino mountains in northern California.

I take deep pride in my work; each piece is infused with its own personality by the time I've finished it. Because these creations have life for me, I will gladly repair anything untoward that may happen to it in the normal course of wearing. Just email me at mineralandmetal@rtr.net, and let me know of any problems which I'd be most eager to fix. I want you to enjoy your wearable art I've made, and to gift it with pride.

All required sales taxes are paid by me, they are included in the purchase price; the price you see, plus applicable shipping, is all that you'll pay at checkout.

.And if you're going to be in either Tehama or Shasta county, contact me and we can arrange to meet with hand-delivery and, if it’s not a special trip for me, I’ll reduce your price by the amount of shipping (which is automatically computed by the website).
