Victoria Necklace by smilingsoul Victoria Necklace by smilingsoul
Victorian romance is the overwhelming influence in this pendant. Intoxicatingly ornate, it reflects the intricate ornamentation of the time. Yards and yards of my hand coiled sterling silver form the swirling frame, onto which are carefully sprinkled pearls, faceted labradorite and tiny sterling beads. At the center is a beautiful sterling silver bead. One white pearl teardrop dangles elegantly from the bottom. It's antique appeal is created by heavy oxidation, then oh, so carefully polishing to reveal a hint of the glow of sterling.

The pendant will arrive on an 18.5" sterling silver chain, with an s-clasp which allows full adjustment flexibility. The pendant measures a touch under 2.5" from the top of it's hanging loop to the bottom of the pearl dangle...and 2" across.

This piece would truly be an elegant addition to any ensemble. Are you looking for an heirloom piece for your romantic, antique wedding? The chain is removable. Wouldn't it also be lovely on a black velvet choker?!

This piece has sold, but if you are interested in commissioning a special order, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you!

I LOVE IT! Ack, but if I ever bought and wore it people would be like "Did you make that? I like it better than all the rest of your pieces!"
