Laurie Schutt - Necklace N118G

Shipping included

From Laurie Schutt - Gorgeous hand forged and textured Silver and Gold Filled Multi ring pendant suspended from an 18" chain, included. This is a necklace you will wear with everything. Pendant measures 1 3/8" diameter.

Made from Argentium (non-tarnish) sterling silver. Argentium Sterling silver is a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium. It contains at least 92.5% Silver, and is still regarded as sterling silver.

Pure silver is almost perfectly white, very ductile and malleable. It is considered too soft for jewelry or flatware use, therefore the addition of small amounts of a base metal serve to harden the alloy.

Gold filled provides the color and luster of solid karat gold while keeping costs down. People often confuse Gold Filled with Gold Plate. Gold plate is a very thin coat of gold electro-plated over a base (non-precious) metal. Whereas, Gold Filled is made by mechanically bonding a much heavier layer of karated gold over the base metal.

About the work

Laurie describes her work as contemporary classics. Her jewelry is hand forged and fabricated using heavy-guage wire and sheets of precious metals. Most pieces are mixed metal to provide maximum versatility for the wearer.
