This sweet necklace features a hydrangea flower in silver and gold. The hydrangea is the flower of gratitude, grace and beauty.
Handmade using one of my favorite techniques of chasing and repousse. This process creates a 3D shape in metal by hammering the metal from the front and back. This is all done freeform without molds. The beauty of this technique to me is how lightweight the jewelry is because of the process of hammering a sheet of metal into the desired image.
Made of recycled sterling silver with a touch of 24k gold keum boo in the center.
Hangs on a 20 inch chain.
Arrives to you in special gift box.
Silver will naturally oxidize over time. I provide a dip and wipes that you can use on any jewelry I make. Commercial dips can be very harsh on surface treatments and porous stones. Try to avoid dipping any porous stones in the solution such as pearls, turquoise, variscites, opals, and jaspers. Q tips are great to get around the stones. If your piece has keum boo on it do not soak your piece in the jewelry dip. Usually a quick dip and immediate rinse in water with soap will clean your piece. Gold pieces can be shined and cleaned with my polishing wipes I provide and if you need to get behind a stone use hot soapy water and a soft toothbrush. If the piece is already oxidized and needs to be cleaned, hot soapy water or a soft cloth work well.
