This autumnal heart is carved from Montana agate. The stone has areas of browns and blacks contained within its translucent matrix. Underneath the stone, the metal is stamped with tiny oak leaves, which are visible through the stone at the right angles. The backside of the pendant is stamped with my maker's mark (BLJ) and a cascade of oak leaves All of the silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. The raised points have been polished to shine, while the low points retain the oxidized color to show off the depth and details. The pendant measures 0.75" tall and 0.75" wide at the 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.
