This versatile sterling silver arched pendant features an eye-catching rope texture with smooth, tapered ends that are each flattened to offer a perpendicular hole. Orient this pendant either with the open end at the bottom, using the perpendicular holes to attach drops or dangles and attaching a bail to the ring, or orient it with the open end at the top, creating a festoon-style pendant, using the ring to attach a drop or dangle. This flexibility allows you to use the component in a variety of ways. The component is oxidized to highlight the twisting texture.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
