Sterling silver bird pendant with Apatite gemstone - Dream
Let your dreams soar free when you wear this delightful sterling silver and brass pendant. The highly detailed bird is made from solid brass, and is adorned with a 4mm apatite stone the color of a cloudless afternoon sky.
The pendant is made from solid sterling silver, hammered with a subtle dappled pattern. The detail is brought out with careful antiquing, and the pendant comes with a 24" sterling silver chain and handmade shepherd's hook clasp. The pendant back measures 1 3/8" by 7/8" (35mm x 22mm), and is quite substantial.
I am always happy to adjust the chain length, so if 24" is not a good length for you, I will be happy to make it a different length. Please let me know the length you want in the message box on the shopping cart page.
ABOUT THE APATITE STONE
:Apatite is a stone seldom found in jewelry stores, but it is beloved by collectors for its many different colors and forms. The neon blue-green variety from Madagascar is gorgeous in jewelry, and the color can often rival the famed Paraiba tourmalines, which are extremely rare now. Care for this stone is similar to that given opals - it is heat and shock sensitive, so steamers and ultrasonics should be avoided. Gentle cleaning by hand with mild dish detergent is best.
