A trio of white pearls, each approximately 4mm in size, is held snuggly in a nest of oxidized sterling silver wire. The nest is approximately 5/8 inches across, and the pendant is secured to a heavy gauge tempered sterling silver jump ring. This allows the pendant to slide freely onto nearly any standard sized chain, ribbon or cord. Each nest is lovingly handcrafted with careful attention paid to the durability and integrity of each piece. Made from over three feet of sterling wire, my nests are as realistic and detailed as I've seen anywhere. The sterling has been oxidized and hand polished to bring out the depth, texture and intricacy of each nest, further adding to the natural look of each piece. Pearl color choices include: White (shown), Pale Pink, Peacock/Blue. If you prefer a color not listed, please contact me and I will create a custom listing for you. (Please see last image for color examples.) ** Please note that this listing is for the pendant ONLY. The chain shown in two of the images is to help customers visualize how the pendant will look on a sterling chain. If you would like a chain, please let me know and I would be happy to provide you with current pricing and availability of several chain options. Built for strength, protection and endurance, birds' nests have long been symbolic of home and a mother's love. Delicate but strong, nests have the ability to withstand even the strongest of storms. A storycard is included with each purchase, and your jewelry will arrive in a cotton lined box perfect for storing your new treasure or ready for any gift-giving occasion.
