Sterling Silver Peony Nugget Necklace
This necklace features my hand drawn peony design etched into a sterling silver nugget. I created this pendant by first melting sterling silver to form a molten orb. I then flattened it and smoothed it for etching. The organic shape lends character to its rustic charm. I've given the nugget pendant an oxidized, brushed finish. The small, yet substantial, pendant measures approximately 1/2" x 1/2" and hangs from an oxidized sterling silver chain.
