Sterling Silver Front Clasping Necklace
This handmade sterling silver necklace clasps at the front, making it chic and unique.
The toggle clasp was hand made with Precious Metal Clay (PMC). The clay was conditioned, rolled, textured, cut out, dried and refined. The dried clay was then kiln fired at a high temperature for 2 hours, resulting in Fine Silver* (99.9% pure silver). The silver was then antiqued and polished to reveal the pretty design. The toggle's diameter is approximate 3/4".
The supporting necklace is made of Balinese Sterling Silver beads and Sterling Silver seamless beads. The beads were hand wrapped together with anti-tarnish silver Artistic Wire. The remainder of the necklace is composed of Sterling Silver cable chain. It is approximately 18" long.
*Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Precious Metal Clay is comprised of fine silver particles that are in a binder which burns away when fired in a kiln leaving only pure silver behind. This metal is gorgeous, and it is more resistant to tarnishing than sterling silver.
