Tiger's eye can be a little hit and miss with the chatoyency, but this is gorgeous!
I set a large, smooth marquise cut cabochon horizontally, after hammering round the outside of the silver, to add interesting texture and suggest water.
I've drilled out a range of different sized holes on the reverse (I was thinking bubbles!) continuing the fluid theme and to echo the balls made from melting offcuts of silver, that I have soldered on the front and on the bars to the sides. My hallmark is on the reverse.
I have made the components either side, and wrapped further small tigers eye beads as a component between the wavy bars and the chain. I've then used some sterling silver medium weight belcher chain and added a hand forged S clasp and jump ring to the back. This measures 18 inches (46 cm)
Because I've articulated it at all those joints, it should sit well, regardless of your neck size
The pendant measures 48mm x 27mm and the forged bars are 4cm
This exact, unique necklace is available for instant dispatch.
I am happy to adjust the length by adding more jump rings to the closure, or shorten it; please add instructions to your order; if you would like me to do this
As with all my fully hand crafted pieces, I used certified recycled sterling silver.

Sterling Silver will eventually oxidise or tarnish. It's a natural process that can be slowed down by regular wear and by keeping unworn items away from the atmosphere. If you leave your jewellery out on display, this oxidisation will be faster. You can polish up your items, with a soft cloth, some silver polish, or a buffing cloth such as Town Talk, which is readily available from any high street jewellers in the UK
Fine silver is 99.9% silver, and because of this the tarnish rate is much, much slower. Again, a buff should do the job for polishing it back up. If I have patinated your silver already, be gentle when buffing!
Each piece should stand up to regular wear, but , as with all jewellery, please remove it before washing, using chemicals or applying perfume etc
Apply body lotion and perfume a few minutes before putting on your jewellery to help slow down tarnish
The sterling silver used in these items was sold to me by my bullion dealer ass certified recycled.
he gemstones I use have been sold to me by reputable dealers as untreated (unless stated specifically in the listing). They are a natural, organic creation from the earth and each one will be slightly different. You can see examples of this on my Facebook page.
I select the stones that I think go together best for each project, hence my comments that each item is individual.
