Japanese Sakura Blossom Necklace, Fine Silver, Sterling Silver Chain
This is my take on Japanese sakura cherry blossoms. A nice, simple design that looks really delicate and pretty on. I shaped a blossom and added detail to fine silver (99.9% pure silver), then soldered a handmade sterling bail to it and hung it from a really delicate sterling silver chain.

The necklace is about 19" long.

It also features labradorite rondelles, as well as, a lobster clasp completes this bracelet.
I further oxidized this bracelet for a rustic appearance.
