Death's Head Moth Gem Chrysocolla/Malachite Pendant in Sterling Silver
The details really shine in this sterling silver death's head moth. Pressed from sterling silver sheet with a hydraulic press, sanded and then soldered to 22 gauge sterling silver sheet. It is then sawed out and soldered to another layer of sterling sheet, along with a smooth bezel that holds gemmy chrysocolla/malachite. Suspended from an 18.5" sterling silver oxidized beaded chain with lobster clasp closure. The entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulphur and buffed and polished to bring out the highlights of the metal.
