This sterling silver component features a four-leaf pearl cap, a grouping of five pegs that will create an attractive pearl cluster and a closed ring; oxidized to highlight the design detail. Finish the component by mounting five 4mm pearls; use jeweler’s epoxy to secure each pearl onto each peg. Add an ear wire to create a drop earring, or add a bail and string it onto a chain or cord as a pendant.
1 center peg size: .032" x 6.3mm
4 surrounding pegs size: .032" x 3.2mm
• 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.
