Sterling Silver Pendant Necklace and Earring Set
These necklaces/ earring sets are simple but elegant. They look great plain, or with Swarovski crystal accents.
I refine the silver for these myself. I use the scraps of coin silver (90% silver) left over from making silver coin rings. I dissolve the centers that are punched from the coins and the rings that i break or ruin while forming the rings, in nitric acid. After diluting the acid i "cement" the silver from the acid solution using pure copper. Rinsing and drying the "cemented" silver, produces a silver powder that is about 98% pure. By adding enough copper, by weight, back in with the silver powder and melting them together, i am left with sterling silver (92.5%). I actually calculate the percentage to be 94% silver to make sure it is at least 925 sterling.
After refining the silver, I pour the molten sterling into a sand mold and when cooled, I shape and sand them to remove all mold marks. I polish them to a mirror finish and attach them to the findings of your choice.
If you like, I can add a genuine, Swarovski crystal as an accent to this simply elegant design.
