Artist Statement: This turned out so beautifully dark!
I made a chain by wire-wrapping AAA grade smooth round garnet gemstones with sterling silver wire, and created a focal drop with a giant (18mm) black onyx teardrop. The onyx is topped with a wonderfully detailed sterling silver beadcap and Bali silver star cap.
The necklace chain measures a bit over 18 inches (including the clasp). The lobster clasp is sterling silver and attaches to a closed sterling silver ring.
