Smashingdarling Sterling Silver
This elegant and unique pendant is inspired by the Art Nouveau period of the 1920's! Hand crafted entirely of sterling silver, it features a 5mm black fresh water pearl of the highest quality. The flower was hand cut and hand formed from sterling silver sheet metal and the leaves are hand formed from sterling silver wire. It is all soldered onto a backing of 5mm X 2mm rectangular sterling silver wire. A bail is then added to a jump ring at the top to give it some extra movement. The pendant measures nearly 2 1/2" (63mm) in length! The entire piece is oxidized and then the vine, leaves, and blossom are all high polished for contrast. It hangs from a 16" black satin ribbon with a large sterling silver clasp and 2" extender.
