Ruby Red Sangria Y Necklace

A solid statement necklace that also blends comfortably on any work day with business attire or casual! 

Woven with all stainless steel rings, capturing all shades of red Swarovski bicone beads, each free floating in its 4-ring chamber, making this necklace not only shimmering in the ombre sangria glow, but also flexible and smooth to the touch.

When the Sun, the Moon, and Stars All Lined up

For as long as I can remember, I've always been fascinated by all things in the sky.  The Sun, the Moon, and all the stars!  For their warmth and shine, and the inspirations offered up to the great poets and artists through the millenniums.

About Copper

The copper used in all my jewelry is pure copper.  It has a warm tone and a nice weight for a substantial feel in your hands. It is also a solid metal, so no worries of material wearing off over the time.

About Jewelry Brass and Bronze

Both jewelry brass and bronze are copper alloy.  Jewelry brass, also known as red brass, is an alloy of copper and zinc, while bronze is copper and tin.

Color-wise, jewelry brass has a rich golden color, very similar to yellow gold, while bronze is paler in comparison, almost somewhat towards pink.  Both jewelry brass and bronze are a solid metal, so no worries of any plating coming off.

About Niobium

Niobium is a natural material, element number 41 on the periodic table, weighs just slightly less than sterling silver. The color of unanodized niobium is a warm gray, very similar but just a shade darker than surgical steel.
When anodized, a layer of "skin" forms on the metal surface.
