Re-posted but a much better picture of my sterling and quartz nodule necklace. An older project I made in the 90's when I had my more youthful and steady hands and my silver bench set up at my past residence . Made of sterling silver loops, the chain is 18 inches long. My neck has gotten bigger over the years, but I can still wear it once and a while, (though a bit more like a choker now). The 1 x 1-1/3inch quartz nodule cluster came from a wicked piece of rough. Stubborn to let go of the prize. A lot of stone was destroyed just to get to this one pretty looking piece. It is accented with a humble CZ and a dark green oval of jade. I just love the old thing. I may not wear it much but I keep it as a memento of my early silversmithing years.
