Silver Fern Pendant 5
Length is 21 inches.
Fine silver pendant is 1 1/4 inches by 1/2 inch. Pendant is made from precious metal clay that has been imprinted with a Red Lady Fern frond.
Pendant hangs from a sterling silver snake chain, a hand forged sterling silver hook clasp and is accented by 3mm faceted iolite beads.
Precious metal clay consists of fine silver particles suspended in an organic binder. After forming, drying and refining the piece is fired in a kiln. During this time the binder burns off and the result is a piece that is .999 pure silver. After firing it has been tumbled to bring out the silver shine. Lastly it has been dipped in an oxidizing agent and the piece has been polished by hand to bring out the beautiful details of the frond.
