This beautiful pendant, handcrafted out of .990 sterling silver filigree, was made in a fair trade women's cooperative in Peru. The stunning detail on the silver work is extraordinary.
Filigree is an intricate form of ornamental jewel work made by intertwining silver or gold wire. It is very light weight and is meant to look as delicate as lace. It is what makes Peruvian jewelry so beautiful and unique.
Measures 7/8" diameter.
Comes with an 18" sterling silver chain.
