Fine Silver Pendants


I make two types of Fine Silver Pendants using PMC silver techniques. You could call them, "contemporary", and "traditional".

Most of my "traditional" pendants are copies of antique buttons from a collection owned by a friend of mine. They are rendered in silver and decorated on the reverse side to provide visual interest even when the pendant has accidentally turned over. Some are polished to a beautiful bright luster, others are chemically surface treated to yield interesting surface colors, or enameled. Still others have real or synthetic gemstones to create extra sparkle. These can be personalized with your birthstone.

Prices vary by size, amount of silver and number and cost of gemstones and do not include the cost of the chain or neck ring.
Small (dime size) are $ 25 to $35
Medium (quarter size) are $ 40 to $ 60
Large (half dollar to silver dollar size) are $ 65 to $95

Sterling chains or neck wires are priced separately depending on length, weight of silver and style and range from $10 to $60

I particularly love to create one-of-a-kind "contemporary" pendants, because I can let my imagination soar. These pieces generally appeal to women who have a lot of pizzaz and like their jewelry to show it.

Prices vary from $85 to $200 and include the chain or neck ring as part of the design.
