This sterling silver geometric festoon pendant has a rectangle shape with an oval cut-out and a pearl peg mounting set inside the oval at each end. Set each peg with a button pearl (or half-drilled flat-back stone) up to 6mm dia. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the bead or pearl on each peg. A fixed attach ring at each end of the festoon makes it easy to incorporate into necklace and bracelet designs, and ensures the pendant will remain centered.
• After setting your stone(s) in this mounting, finish or polish as necessary to complete your 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 silver by keeping it in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store metals in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
