This easy-to-love Necklace showcases a Reticulated Silver and Sterling Silver Cross by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. The Cross was created by "splashing" molten Reticulated Silver on a work surface, allowing it to cool, then cutting and shaping the Silver to the desired design. Reticulation is the process of heating Sterling Silver at high temperatures; the Copper alloy in the interior of the metal flows before the surface metal does, creating wonderful ridges and textures. Our Cross is 2-3/8 inches tall by 7/8 inches wide, including the handcrafted Sterling Silver Bail. Due to the "splash" process the Cross is thicker than 20 gauge Sterling plate and has a weighty feel. It is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." We've paired the Cross with 3 strands of 5mm Black Nugget Pearls. The Pearls are iridescent, displaying subtle hues of silver, bronze and violet. They are interspersed with 3mm Vintage Czechoslovakian Nailheads, which are near-black in color and faceted, emitting a delicate sparkle. The stones are highlighted by six 9mm Sterling Silver Urn Beads, which mirror the Silver Cross Pendant and contrast nicely with the rich tones of the Nugget Pearls. The Necklace is finished with a Sterling Silver Wavy Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 68 grams and is 24 inches long, plus the Pendant (when wearing, this is a vertical hang length of about 10-1/2 inches).
