The phases of the moon, celebrated in sterling silver and moonstone.
This lunar phase pendant features a stunning moonstone as the whole phase. The stone has a beautiful adularesence, causing it to catch light and results in a gorgeous blue flash at almost every angle! The quarter and crescent phases have been hand-sawn from sterling silver and detailed. The silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. The moons have been polished to shine, while the low points and the rest of the pendant retain the oxidized color to show off the depth and details. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver.
The pendant measures 0.5" tall and 1.5" wide.

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.
