A larger version of the Open Circle necklace that was designed in the Fall of 2015 to offer layering options to the collection. The circle is handcrafted with a thicker
12 gauge wire so it can hang beautifully for a real pendant feel. You can dress up or down. I wire wrapped the pendant with gold filled to contrast the tone of the metal.

Sterling silver contains a small percentage of copper alloy which causes tarnishing. Also exposure to sunlight, heat and humidity naturally cause sterling silver to tarnish, as well as the acids in your skin.
CARE: Keep your silver filled/sterling silver polished with a jewelry cloth or silver cleaner. Minimize the exposure to chemicals (hairsprays,perfume,body lotions,bleach etc.) For the best results, store your sterling silver in a dark, dry place, and seal in airtight ziploc bags.
Oxidized/Antique silver filled and sterling silver
Vella mode uses a water based solution to oxidize silver filled and sterling pieces. Cleaning it may scratch and remove some of the dark patina. Oxidize silver require the least maintenance.
CARE: You may buff with a soft cloth to bring up the shine, if desired, or wipe with a damp cloth if dirty.
