This was such a fun neclace to make. A piece of 22g sterling silver sheet was cut 1 1/4" wide at one end and 1" wide at the other end. The piece is folded lengthwise around a very small wooden dowel and then put into a vise. The dowel is removed and the top is hammered flat. A small hammer was used to give it a unique texture on top. The final piece ends up 1" wide and tapers to 7/8" wide. A patina was applied to darken and accentuate the marks.
A small store bought heart-shaped charm was added for extra interest.
The necklace hangs 11 1/2" from a sterling silver chain with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp.
There is a matching pair of earrings named "Table Talk" that cost $ 45. If the earrings and necklace are purchased together at the same time the cost is $ 80.00. See Product Options to purchase the set.

Sterling silver may tarnish if not stored properly. An anti-tarnish pad is included with this piece and should be stored together when not being worn. A good jewelry polishing cloth should remove any tarnish if it appears.
