This graceful Necklace features a Sterling and Reticulated 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. The process also creates 99% pure Silver as the impurities in the metal dissipate. Our Cross is 2-1/2 inches tall by 1-3/4 inches wide including the hammered Sterling Silver Bail. Due to the "splash" process the Cross is far 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 12mm Kingman Boulder Turquoise, in eye-catching shades of sky blue and golden brown. The Kingman Turquoise is complemented by twelve 5mm Sterling Pumpkin Beads, and 8-by-10mm Hammered Sterling Tube Beads, which echo the textures in the Cross. At the top of the Necklace the Turquoise transitions to 2 strands of amber-colored Picasso Fire Polished Glass. The Firepolished Glass mirrors the brown tones in the Turquoise and adds subtle sparkle. The Necklace is finished with a Sterling Silver Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 154 grams and is 23-1/4 inches long plus the Cross.
