This dainty necklace began as a hoop of sterling silver wire, which I forged and hammered by hand. I wire-wrapped vibrant faceted genuine turquoise beads around the frame, and wrapped a sparkling, translucent aqua chalcedony drop at the bottom of the hoop. I also wire-wrapped a faceted genuine turquoise drop in the center of the hoop. At the beginning of the dainty, sterling silver chain, I wire-wrapped two coordinating faceted genuine aquamarine beads. A sterling lobster clasp finishes the necklace. I oxidized (antiqued) the silver of the pendant and polished the high points to add greater contrast and bring out the details of the wire-wrapping.

This is a shorter necklace; the chain measures 15 3/4", and the pendant, from the top loop to the bottom of the chalcedony drop, measures 1 1/2".
