This teardrop shaped pendant was formed using nickel silver metal clay and features a prong-set lepidolite that amass with shades of lavender and white. The pendant hangs from a simple rolo chain that is 24 inches long, making it a great length to pair with a turtleneck or fuzzy sweater. Also a great pairing for the little black dress to give a classic look a pop of color. Nickel silver is not silver. It is an alloy of copper, zinc and nickel. Those with certain metal sensitivities should take extra precaution. Because the metal has copper in it, it will tarnish even if the process is a bit slower than that of bronze or copper itself. I still recommend keeping it in an anti-tarnish storage bag when not being worn which is something I include with every pendant order. The pendant will be sent gift boxed for ease of giving and safe shipping.
