This sterling silver cross pendant features simple, classic styling and a rabbit-ear bail. Use it alone to create a necklace, or combine it with other charm and component styles to create a more complex necklace made with chain or cord. A rabbit-ear bail is a tapered style that is split in half vertically, giving it the appearance of a pair of long, curving rabbit ears. To highlight the detail of the pendant and boost the contrast, oxidize the pendant.
• 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.
