Women's Ruby Briolette & Silver Necklace with the optimism & energy of an Adventure Seeker ** Photo's are close-ups, one view near a dime. The fine silver charm is about 1/2" round, tiny & Light, smaller than a dime, with a free-spirited design. Enhancing drops on a slender sterling silver oxidized curb chain. Because the charms are small, you can layer this necklace for different looks, or vibrant on it's own. A small, strawberry hued genuine ruby stone, I wire wrapped, & placed on a light, modern oxidized curb chain, to dangle in front of one of our tiny handmade fine silver charms (99% silver). Sterling Silver necklace chain is 18" long. You are accented by the necklace and not the other way around. The Ruby adds about another 1" length total.

Red is the color of optimism and energy. Athletes will sometimes wear red for extra zip. "Thermodynamics II" Ruby & Sterling Necklace, for our Journey line of silver necklaces, earrings & rings. We ship our jewelry in small decorative boxes with a soft insert for padding. Each box top is different. The boxes are made mainly of recycled materials. We create the fine silver charms, using PMC (Precious Metal Clay) silver, which is similar to modeling clay, containing small silver particles in a nontoxic, organic binder. The piece is mainly worked in the clay form, then fired in the kiln, where the binder burns away, leaving behind nearly-pure silver. I placed a patina on it after firing, to accent the design. PMC contains mainly recycled silver, often from industrial use. Each of our pieces are entirely hand crafted, and will be unique. All of our Fine Silver will exhibit the unique shapes, curves, markings of a handmade piece.
