This sterling silver festoon features an intricate open filigree pattern that is ideal for necklaces, bracelets or anklets; create a simple design element, or use multiple pendants in sequence to form a larger pattern. A cleverly designed attach ring at the bottom tip of the pendant can be used to add a dangle, or left open. The oxidized finish highlights the texture and design of the pendant; hidden ring bails at each end create a seamless finish when it is set in place and keep it correctly oriented in your finished piece.
• 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.
