About this design:

A friend of mine requested that I make her a pendant reminiscent of outer space on a chain to match. So I made her this pendant from PMC3 fine silver (clay) end product is 100% solid fine silver (99.999% pure silver) topped with 24k gold highlighting the shooting star. I made the chain from sterling silver wire and iolite beads and finished it all with a handmade clasp. Then I oxidized everything to make it all "pop" and add depth. I hand polished the pendant to a mirror finish which can be seen in a few pics, that's also why the pendant either looks white or blue, it's reflecting its surroundings.


Iolite, sterling silver wire, PMC3 fine silver clay, 24k gold accent for silver
