Description

This is a chainmail pendant in a pattern I developed called Hotaru, the Japanese word for 'Firefly'.

I make every piece by hand. Starting with genuine sterling silver wire, I coil and cut each ring, and weave them together myself.

Matching earrings: https://www.etsy.com/listing/281469446/hotaru-chainmail-earrings-in-sterling

The Stones:

Amethyst, a violet variety of quartz that the Greeks believed could prevent intoxication. Its is found in many places in the world; including my adopted home of Georgia, and Michigan, where I was born and raised.

Bronzite is an iron-bearing variety of magnesium silicate, that has a sheen similar to tiger's eye.

Carnelian can vary in color from light orange to nearly black, though I use a red variety for my work. It is a form of chalcedony, and has been used by humans for jewelry since the Early Neolithic period.

Lapis Lazuli is a 'rock' in the geologic sense in that it is made up of a collection of minerals, sometimes as many as twenty different types. the most dominant one is lazurite, which gives the stone its deep blue color.

Labradorite is of the feldspar family and named after the Labrador half of the Canadian province Newfoundland and Labrador, where it weas first discovered. It displays an iridescent optical effect similar to opal but unique, called 'labradorescence'.

Peridot is the birthstone for the month of August. It is the gemstone quality variety of the more common mineral olivine, and is usually found near volcanic activity or in meteorite strike sites.
Please keep in mind that I only use real natural stones. Each one is unique, so what you will receive will vary somewhat from the photo.

The pendant includes an 18" sterling silver chain, as pictured.

FAQs

I am always happy to design and produce custom work to your specifications. Just hit the 'contact' button up top and let me know what you are looking for, and we can work it out together!
Most of my bracelets are displayed in the 7"-7½" range of size, and necklaces / pendant chains are standard sized at 18". However, I will custom size anything I make to fit your needs. Just leave me a note when you check out and I'll follow up with you if I have any questions.
Copper: The enameled copper that I work with is very tarnish resistant. Anything short of a very aggressive abrasive is unlikely to damage the surface.

Silver and Gold: Real silver and gold tarnish over time - even Argentium, despite what you may have heard. I work with traditional Sterling Silver, which can be cleaned with a silver dip cleaner that can be purchased at any retail location that sells jewelry. The same applies to 14kt, 18kt, and gold fill wire - I recommend a gold dip cleaner. For mixed metals, use a generic jewelry cleaner or the aforementioned silver dip cleaner. All of the stones I work with are safe in a dip cleaner, unless specifically mentioned otherwise in the item description.
Bracelets and necklaces are generally packaged in a traditional 8" x 2" x 1" kraft box, pendants and earrings are packaged in my own custom 2" x 2" printed boxes. If you have a special request, just contact me and I'll accommodate you if I can!
I am happy to offer wholesale pricing for retail sellers, just contact me and we can discuss details.
I take great pride in my work, and I hope that my customers enjoy it as well. If you ever damage or break a piece that I have made, contact me and I will repair it for you, all I ask is that you ship it to me or meet me at one of my frequent shows.
