This necklace is the perfect gift for the bird lover in your life! It features a round PMC/fine silver pendant with a stamping of a very cute little chickadee. The pendant is 11/16 inches in diameter (approximately 18mm) and hangs off an 18 inch sterling silver cable chain.
The pendant has been hand formed from Precious Metal Clay, which is recycled fine silver in a clay form. As such, this makes this material an environmentally friendly product. The clay was shaped and textured, and then fired in a kiln, where the organic binders burn off, leaving a beautiful piece of fine silver. Fine silver is 99.99% pure silver, whereas sterling silver is only 92.5% pure silver. Because of its purity, PMC/fine silver is a more valuable metal. In addition, its relative lack of copper as opposed to silver, keeps it tarnish free for much longer.
Once the piece was fired, it was tumbled to strengthen it, and then oxidized with liver of sulphur to give it an antique patina to bring out the details of the texture. The piece was then hand polished to a high shine.
This necklace comes boxed in a pretty silver box with bow and is ready for gift giving.
