This necklace was created by using a process called reticulation. The small amount of copper (7.75%) found in sterling silver will contract when heated with the torch. The best part is you can never replicate it, so each piece is one of a kind. The pendant is 1.5 inches across and the chain is adjustable up to 18.5 inches. The pendant can be removed and the chain can be worn on its own for a variety of looks. Complimentary polishing cloth included.
