This elegant Necklace displays a Sterling Silver Cross by Nevada Silversmith Jim Daggett. The base of the Cross is crafted from Sterling Silver Plate, which was then covered in a second layer of Reticulated Silver. Reticulation involves heating Sterling at high temperatures; the Copper alloy in the interior of the metal flows before the surface metal does, creating ridges and textures. Our Cross exhibits raised patterns and a variety of textures that catch and reflect light, giving it a highly customized look. It has a circular Bail and is etched on the back with the artist's name. We've matched the Cross with four strands of 4mm near-black Nugget Pearls, which are iridescent and have a subtle shine. The Pearls are mixed with 3mm vintage Czechoslovakian Nailheads, which are faceted and plum-black in color. On either side of the Cross Pendant are 9mm Sterling Silver Ornate Cylinders, which have a textured surface that mirrors the Cross. The Pearls are further highlighted by 5mm Sterling Pumpkin Beads and 4mm Sterling Cubes. The Necklace is finished with Curved Sterling Cones and Stamped Toggle Clasp, and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 80 grams and is 23 inches long plus the Cross, which is 2-1/2 inches by 1-3/8 inches plus a 3/8-inch bail.
