Description

This moth necklace is inspired by an old book cover in the style of Art Nouveau and features a pair of natural green tourmaline cabochons. Art Nouveau often depicted different wildlife, and moths were recurring motif during that era.

Every section you see in this pendant is hand cut with a jeweler's saw. The top is layered and soldered to a backing for extra strength. All of the metal used is sterling silver. It has been given an antique patina before a final polish to bring out the high points.

The two stones are bezel set in the locations that a moth would have its "eye spots"- used for confusing predators.

SIZE and LENGTH:

The moth portion has a 2 inch wingspan (about 5 cm), and the attached chain including the top of the moth is about 24 inches.

Thanks so much for looking!

Info on Sterling Silver and Copper:

Sterling Silver:

The sterling silver used at Lithic Design is 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper . All of my sterling silver will tarnish naturally over time unless otherwise indicated. I personally love the way silver looks as it ages. Silver is easy to clean with a simple polishing cloth. Two easy options are keeping your jewelry in a small plastic baggy or storing it in an anti tarnish jewelry case. Another trick is adding a silica bag to your storage container to absorb extra moisture (these are the little packets you find in shoeboxes, etc.). If you are still concerned about this, it may be possible to add an anti tarnish coating to the piece of jewelry you are interested in. Send me an Etsy "convo" and I can let you know!

Copper:

Copper will tarnish just as silver will over time (see above for storing and cleaning). Many people ask if wearing copper will turn their skin green. There are several factors that play into this including how much you sweat, how long you wear the piece for, if you wear lotions and other beauty products, and even the pH of your skin. The best thing you can do is to wipe your jewelry with a soft cloth after wearing it. This is also helpful with brass jewelry.

FAQs

Ring Sizing:

Please feel free to contact me for a sizing chart or to order a ring sizer.

Necklace Length:

Most necklaces can be shortened or have longer chains made by request. Please contact me before placing your order if you have a length request, and I will try my best to accommodate it.
Lithic Design NEVER uses nickel, but if you have a copper allergy or any other concerns with earrings, I would be happy to work with you to find a suitable hypoallergenic ear wire.

I keep titanium wire in stock for custom ear wires as it is even more hypoallergenic than stainless steel, which contains a small amount of nickel.
