The lower case letters are about 1/4" tall and the upper case letters are between 1/2" and 3/4". Permanently attached to a delicate sterling silver drawn cable chain with a handmade sterling clasp and quality tag stamped with my signature, making your necklace a signed work of art! The forged wire letters are soldered to add strength, then the entire necklace is polished and hardened for 24 hours in a rotary tumbler.
The third picture shows an 18" necklace on a petite model (5'1" tall, 100 pounds, small frame and shoulders). Use this as a reference to order the appropriate size and total length for your necklace. If you would like a heavier necklace with larger letters, chain and crystals or beads, just let me know. Of course you can contact me for any questions you may have. Ordering instructions are given below.
The handmade clasp has a built-in security feature. The figure 8 loop has been flattened and will only pass through the opening of the hook one way. It has to be flipped end over end to be unhooked. This feature prevents accidental opening and loss and these clasps are much sturdier than manufactured clasps.
This necklace comes adorned with Swarovski crystals or pearls. I can add up to three crystals, pearls or beads on each side of the word in any combination of color, size and shape. Please go to this blog post, where you will find the color charts for the Swarovski crystals and pearls, along with other suggested options:

Order in your choice of words. Each letter over 9 is $2.00 each. If the word you would like is over 9 letters, I can create a custom listing for you or you can purchase this listing and I will send you a PayPal invoice for the extra letters.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Because of the large number of custom orders I have recently received, please allow approximately 12 to 14 weeks for your made-to-order jewelry to be completed. SilverTrove jewelry is in high demand and each piece is individually hand made by Carol Braden-Williams. PLEASE IGNORE THE INFORMATION ON THE SHIPPING TAB which states this item will be ready to ship in 9 to 10 weeks. The discrepancy is due to an Etsy technical issue which we hope will be fixed soon. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated and I am looking forward to creating your custom made jewelry!
