Handmade Sterling Silver and Moss Agate Necklace - Genevieve

The Genevieve necklace - 12mm beads of Moss Agate accented with sterling silver bead and hand wrapped with argentium sterling silver. A hand formed link that has been fused closed then hammered for texture drips with a 12mm Moss Agate. This necklace is finished off with 9 inches of sterling silver figure 8 chain. Securely closes with a sterling silver lobster clasp. Genevieve's total length is 21 inches with the Moss Agate drop adding another inch.

Moss Agate is a form of agate which includes minerals of a green colour embedded in chalcedony, forming filaments and other patterns suggestive of moss.

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.

Gracie Jewellery is handmade in my smoke and pet free studio and arrives in its own storage pouch.
