Twinkling and sparkly, the Shimmering Night Necklace combines a lovely piece of druzy Amethyst with my ten-point star design for a simple, lightweight necklace.
A druzy is a type of mineral formation that occurs when water containing dissolved silica enters a cavity in the larger mineral (stone) and evaporates, leaving behind a layer of tiny crystals on the surface. Derived from the German word "drusen," which means "to form into small parts," they often can occur on quartz, agate, and amethyst (among others).
I create the ten-point star design by hand-sawing two star forms, arranging, and soldering them together.
This necklace hangs on a 16" to 18" adjustable sterling silver chain.

It's recommend to remove your sterling silver jewelry before going into a pool, hot tubs/hot springs, and when doing household chores that involve chemical cleaners.
Cleaning Options: 1. Warm Water and Mild Dish Soap with a gentle brush 2. Microfiber Cloths or polish-embedded cloths (may affect the color of patina) 3. Ultrasonic cleaner -- if your jewelry has a stone in it, TO AVOID DAMAGE, please check that it is safe to place that type of stone in an ultrasonic cleaner
Tarnish Happens: Consistent wear may help keep tarnish at bay, but when your jewelry needs a rest, try to store it in a cool, dry place. Storing with anti-tarnish strips, silica packs, or even chalk may help.
