Two Trees with Bluebird on Sterling Silver
One-of-a-Kind: This necklace sports a pendant of two anodized Niobium* trees with a little niobium blue bird nested in between. The trees are mounted on a sterling silver hammered rounded rectangle. The pendant measures 2-1/4”. 1-1/4 “. The sterling silver chain has inserts of anodized niobium Byzantine weave chain maille in blue-green shades.
* Niobium (Nb) is a reactive metal similar to titanium. An electrical current passed through it will change the surface color (anodized). The amount of voltage applied will determine the color. It is hypoallergenic because it is resistant to acids and alkalines. To clean, if it loses its shine, use any window cleaner. It costs about the same as sterling silver and is a bit lighter in weight. While the anodized color does not fade, it is a surface color and can scratch but not readily.
