Sterling Silver Hummingbird Pendant

$295.00

Description

This Sterling Silver Hummingbird Pendant is comprised of three separate handcrafted elements.  Our first step was that we sawed each element from metal.  For this, we used 20 gauge and 18 gauge .935 Argentium Sterling Silver. Second, we sweat soldered the elements together.  The pendant features three Red Rhodolite Garnet cabochons.  There is one 6mm and two 5mm cabochons.  Third, we set the cabochons. We set them in 30 gauge .935 Argentium bezels.  Fourth, we enhanced the pendant with hand stippling.  We also added hand scribed line patterning.  The final step was to do something special for the wearer.  So, we added a hand scribed unique design to the back.

The Sterling Silver Hummingbird Pendant measures 2-1/4″ x 1-1/2″.  Our .935 Argentium Sterling Silver chains are sold separately. Please click on “Chains” to view the selection.

This pendant would be stunning with black.  It also works well with purple and dark grey.

We sign every piece of our jewelry on the back and stand behind our workmanship. You are welcome to use our “Contact Us” form to ask questions, make suggestions or to inquire about special requests or possible commissions.

An English professor of silversmithing invented Argentium sterling silver  in 1996.   Traditional sterling silver has a pure silver content of 92.5%.  In contrast, Argentium has a pure silver content of 93.5%.  A small amount of the element germanium replaces some of the copper. As a result, this new sterling silver is highly tarnish resistant, more workable and harder than traditional sterling silver.  Many people who are allergic to traditional sterling silver can wear Argentium sterling silver without a problem.
