The Peony Collection.
Sterling silver pendant made up of 5 - 8mm rings intertwined to make a small flower. Finished diameter is 12mm. The fine curb chain is sterling silver with a sterling silver clasp. Total length including the pendant is 18 inches.
Sterling silver earrings made up of 5 - 8mm rings attached to sterling silver lever backs. Finished diameter is 12mm. Total length top to bottom 32mm (1½").
Made from *Argentium Sterling Silver all the links have been hand formed by me, fused closed by me and then tumbled for hours for strength and shine. And then, finally, all the links were assembled into the pendant and earrings by me. All in all a timely but fun process.
All Gracie Jewellery is handmade in my smoke and pet-free home studio. Each piece arrives in its own storage pouch.
*Argentium Sterling Silver is sterling silver with less of the copper alloy. Copper is what makes sterling silver tarnish. Argentium is 92.5% pure silver with the balance a mix of germanium and copper. This makes Argentium silver harder, brighter and more highly tarnish resistant than traditional sterling silver.
