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, life cycles, elemental forces, sacred geometry, the universe itself. Nesting circles often represent a person’s relationship with 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 which gets hammer formed, soldered and shaped completely by hand into a beautiful and unique pair of nested circles with their own rustic texture, no two are ever the same. After the hammer forming, it gets meticulously refined, filed and polished by hand, to ensure that it is beautiful and long lasting.
This necklace is made to order, no two are exactly the same. Yours will be custom created for you with your choice of chain length.
-Hand formed solid sterling silver rustic double circle pendant with hammer texture.
-Circle pendant measures 25mm (1″) outer circle diameter, 19mm (3/4″) inner circle diameter, and about 1.5mm thickness (please expect very slight variations as these are hand forged).
-Pendant loop is solid sterling silver oval that holds both rings in their nesting positions and is soldered closed to ensure the design integrity.
-Chain is solid sterling silver 1.1mm cable chain. It looks delicate but is quite strong.
-Your choice of hammered hook and loop clasp (shown in photos) or small spring ring clasp.
-Choose your desired chain length from the drop down menu. (Necklace in photos is 18″ length).
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.
