This necklace is made from Precious Metal Clay, which is fine silver in a binder and it handles much like stoneware or earthenware. the piece was fired at 1200 to 1600 degrees at which point the binder is burned off and what is left is fine silver!! I put this piece in liver of sulfur to get the patina. Then I buffed it, leaving some of the color burst from the patina process. Crazy, huh?
There is a cubic zirconium in the center. The chain is stainless steel. $45
