A nickel silver pendant featuring a cherry quartz, this one of a kind piece was handcrafted using metal clay. The cherry quartz was prong set using nickel silver wire and the metal clay itself was textured to in a way that the cherry quartz appears framed. The entire pendant hangs from a bail and a ball and link chain with a lobster clasp completes the necklace. Cherry quartz is not a naturally occurring gemstone and is technically glass. Despite this, it is still used to enhance certain aspects of one's personality like enthusiasm, confidence and courage. It's also just very pretty to look at. While the metal is called nickel silver, it does not contain any silver. It is an alloy of zinc, copper and nickel so those with skin sensitivities should take extra precautions. It also will tarnish like most other metals so I include anti-tarnish tabs and recommend keeping your piece sealed when not worn. I include a gift box for ease of giving and safe shipping.
