Metal Clay and Sterling Necklace

This heart necklace was made from metal clay, the chain is sterling silver. The hearts have a delicate hammered texture I also did the same to the toggle and bar. I made a chain with jump rings which have all been soldered. It's a very simple necklace and sits beautifully when you wear it. I know it's a bit late for Valentine's but I still love it:-)

The necklace is sporting my Hallmark. I always make my own tags for my hallmark, when you send it to the assay office they will just put it anywhere, so I tell them to pop it on the little tag, that way its where I want it.

I hope you like it.

wow that's really pretty, i like how you are photographing your jewellery with the stones, it ands a different look to it. i have made a few bits now and i've found i like the look of mixing highly polished with a matt look. i made a pendant with 3 ivy leaves and have highly polished the bail and the middle leaf but left the other 2 matt. i'm improving but i'm nowhere near your standards yet.
anyway hope you are still recovering well, and taking it easy.
