Sterling Silver Mushroom Pendant Necklace
Sterling silver mushroom pendant necklace features a bronze moon with stars. Includes an 18 inch, rhodium-plated sterling silver 1.0mm snake chain with lobster clasp.
Rhodium plated silver is sterling silver coated in rhodium to make it whiter and brighter. Silver is a softer metal, so rhodium protects it from scratches or wear. Solid silver is too soft to be fashioned into jewelry, so it contains 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other metals like copper, nickel, or a combination of the two. The traces of copper and nickel in sterling silver cause tarnishing. Adding rhodium plating prevents this from happening.
In an oval frame we set a nighttime scene where three little mushrooms stretch out toward moon and stars, transforming dead matter into fertile soil. Mushrooms are nature's recyclers where old becomes new, and fairy tales' mischief makers where good becomes naughty. For centuries the sudden eruption of circles of mushrooms from the soil led people to believe dark and terrible forces were at work. "Earthly vapours," lightning strikes, fiery tails of dragons, witches and sorcerers have all been blamed.
This magical mushroom charm make great gifts for all the avid readers, imaginative creatives, and mushroom enthusiasts in the world.
Pendant measures 26 x 15mm.
