Pimentón Ahumado

Named for the fabulous spice - smoked paprika - the Pimentón Ahumado necklace is graced by a curved and delicate pendant, enhanced with rich AAA spessartite garnet pointed briolettes.

The pendant has been painstakingly wirewrapped and enhanced with teensy pyrite rondelles - which I love to use, as it gives the appearance of marcasite - I have also used some smooth sterling silver rounds. A length of chain has been securely added to either side of the pendant, and an additional length of chain and a hand crafted "S" clasp completes the design. The entire design was oxidised deeply, and then selectively rubbed back.

This measures an adjustable 39 - 46cm or 15 1/4 - 18" in length, while the pendant measures 6cm or 2.4" in length (from the top of the pendant to the base of the lower spessartite garnet briolette) and 3.4cm or 1.3" at the widest point.
