One of the oldest symbols known to us, the circle has been around since before the beginning of recorded history, representing many ideas to many cultures. Eternity, natural order, spiritual beliefs, personal philosophies, life cycles, elemental forces, sacred geometry, the universe itself. Concentric circles often represent a person’s relationship with self, nature, others, the universe as a whole. This pendant necklace is a beautiful and simple representation of those timeless ideologies. Made of solid hammer formed sterling silver it features a rustic hammered texture and a simple unique design.
I start with solid 12 gauge sterling silver and solid 12 gauge 14k yellow gold, which gets hammer formed, soldered and shaped completely by hand into a beautiful and unique trio of concentric circles with their own rustic texture, no two sets are ever the same. After the hammer forming, they get meticulously refined, filed and polished by hand, to ensure that they are beautiful and long lasting.
This necklace is made to order and each one is unique, the one in the photos is sold and yours will be created just for you.

-Circle pendant measures 25mm (1″) outer circle diameter, 19mm (3/4″) center circle diameter, 13mm (1/2″) inner circle diameter, and about 1.5mm thickness (please expect very slight variations as these are hand forged).

-14k Gold circle is stamped on the backside with 14k gold stamp.
-Pendant loop is a hand forged 14 gauge solid sterling silver ring that is soldered closed to ensure the design integrity.
-Circles in this design dangle within a larger sized loop so that they have room to sit one in front of another, grouped at a single point (as shown in photos). They will move about during wear, sometimes nesting within one another, sometimes changing position within the loop (they make a very pleasant jingling sound when moving about).
-Chain is solid sterling silver 1.1mm cable chain. It looks delicate but is quite strong. Alternatively, if you are interested in a solid 14k gold chain for this necklace, please contact me for current pricing and availability.

NECKLACE LENGTH GUIDELINES
If you already know your desired necklace length, simply select it from the drop down menu. Sizes are listed by the inch. If you would like an in between size (example 18 1/2″) please select the closest size from the menu and then leave me a note at checkout requesting the size. I will accommodate the size request as closely as possible.
If you don’t know what length you need, here’s how to measure to get the proper size. Take a flexible tape measure and drape it around your neck at the length you want the necklace to lay. The measurement where the two ends meet is your necklace length.
If you don’t have a tape measure handy, you can use a string and a flat ruler. Simply drape the string around your neck in the same way as you would with a tape measure. Pinch the string on each end where the two ends meet, and then place that section of string against a flat ruler to get your measurement.
You can also measure the length of a necklace you own that fits how you like in order to get your measurement, but if you choose this method please try to measure a necklace that is of a similar style to this one or at least is designed to lay the same way. Different necklace styles can fit very differently even if they are the same length measured end to end.
That’s it! Then choose your necklace measurement from the drop down menu and I will create your necklace to your desired length.
