This elegant 23.5" fine silver chain is handmade by me in my workshop. Each link is a hand-hammered tear drop shape with a silver ball inside, which was neatly folded back to hold the next link. The chain closes with a Sterling Silver lobster clasp of the same size and shape, so it blends perfectly with the chain. I have taken care that the links are uniform in shape and size and beautifully finished.

Because of its fold-over structure, sections of chain can be easily added/removed to change...

I created this sparkling bracelet by hand-weaving fourteen strands of 20 gauge sterling silver wire. It has good substance, containing a full ounce of silver. The light dances off all those woven strands like diamonds. My hand-made sterling end caps complete the classic design.

It measures 7” in length as it is pictured, but is easily adjusted to fit just about anyone. It is 14mm wide, or just a little over ½”.

Freshwater pearls this round, clean and well-matched are hard to find. This 18" Pearl strand is slightly graduated from 6 to 7 mm. It closes with a 14 Karat white gold fishhook clasp. The clasp is marked 14KX.

14KX is a relatively new gold alloy with only minimal nickel content, so it is unlikely to cause allergic reactions in people with a sensitivity to metals.
