The focal point of the Autumn Jewels Necklace is a stunning raw citrine point, captured in a handmade sterling silver bezel. The pendant is suspended from a hand-wrapped chain comprised of 44 sparkling faceted hessonite garnet beads encased in sterling silver wire. The silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. The chain is finished with a handmade hook clasp. The wearable length of the necklace is adjustable, as the hook fits securely through any link in the chain. The maximum chain length is 22". The stone pendant measures 1.5" tall and 1" wide at its widest point. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver.

A few notes on caring for oxidized sterling silver: oxidized patina on sterling silver isn't particularly durable to long-term exposure to water (like bathing or swimming) or a lot of scrubbing, as friction is the way to polish silver to shine. Constant exposure to tasks such as hand washing, bathing, swimming, washing dishes, etc., will slowly wear away the oxidized patina leaving a shiny silver finish.
