The washer and chain are made of solid .925 sterling silver. The starfish is high-quality pewter. My standard chain is an 18" rope, as shown, which is also available in 16" or 20" lengths or an 18" sterling silver box chain is also available.

Because I make this necklace when you order it, please allow me the turnaround time currently listed in my shop announcement. I start with a sheet of sterling silver, cut the washer, and stamp each letter by hand. I can hand stamp the phrase "It Matters to This One" as in the photos, or I can hand stamp names, words, or a short phrase of your choosing. Just let me know in the Notes to Seller at checkout if you have any personalization requests.

I'll include this story excerpt with the "It Matters to This One" starfish necklace:
"While wandering a deserted beach at dawn, stagnant in my work, I saw a man in the distance bending and throwing as he walked the endless stretch toward me. As he came near, I could see that he was throwing starfish, abandoned on the sand by the tide, back into the sea. When he was close enough I asked him why he was working so hard at this strange task. He said that the sun would dry the starfish and they would die. I said to him that I thought he was foolish. there were thousands of starfish on miles and miles of beach. One man alone could never make a difference. He smiled as he picked up the next starfish. Hurling it far into the sea he said, "It makes a difference for this one." I abandoned my writing and spent the morning throwing starfish." ~Loren Eisley, The Star Thrower (1978)

I also offer this necklace in copper, found here:

And also in nugold / jeweler's brass:
