This sterling silver link component features an open filigree design within a marquise-shaped frame. Add a bail or jump ring to one of the component's fixed rings to create a pendant or earring, then add a gemstone drop, dangle or charm to the second ring to finish the component. Alternatively, use jump rings to connect two or more links in a variety of necklace and bracelet designs, or to create a unique chain. This component is oxidized to accentuate its design.
• 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.
