Being of more than half Swedish descent, and a horse lover as well, I have always been intrigued by the Dala Horses (which are named after the Dalarna province, where my grandfather was born).
Details: Small Dala Horse pendant is just under 3/4 inch across (18mm). CZ teardrop is 12x6mm, chain is 1.7mm cable. All Sterling chain and findings.
Size: Just under 16 1/2 inches.

I hand-formed the Fine Silver pendant from metal clay and impressed it with the Dala Horse image. After firing, it was then tumble-polished, oxidized for contrast, and hand-polished. Metal clay is composed of fine silver particles (recycled/reclaimed) blended with an organic binder. During firing in a kiln the binder burns away and the silver particles fuse (sinter) together to leave a .999 Fine Silver piece! Each piece is unique and will have features inherent to the process of making things by hand. Design on one side only.
Jewelry is carefully packaged in a 100% recycled kraft gift box tied with eco friendly hemp cord (cord color varies). No receipt is included and jewelry is ready for gift-giving if that is your intention (no price tags). If you require a printed receipt, let me know in "notes to seller".
