Little Bluestem Impression Mini Hoop Necklace, Fine and Sterling Silver
Small, but mighty. Little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium) is a delicate little prairie grass, known as a bunch grass. Her impression is captured in fine silver in this unique mini hoop necklace. She doesn't like to be alone, growing in blue-green clumps on the prairie, turning reddish-brown during the winter. Her flowers appear fluffy above the leaves, looking like "eyelashes" on the plant, giving it an even more delicate appearance.
Although she looks delicate, little bluestem is mighty, withstanding the summer droughts of the prairie, providing forage and shelter for other prairie inhabitants.
Pendant Measurements: Approximately 5/8" in diameter. Matt finish, oxidized with polished highlights.
Chain: Sterling silver 1mm curb chain with spring-ring clasp. Select chain length in the drop-down menu before adding to your cart. Comes in 16", 18", 20, or 24" lengths. Photos show 18" length. Can also be purchased without a chain.
MATERIALS: Pendant is created from fine silver (99.9% silver). Fine silver will tarnish more slowly than sterling. All chains are sterling silver.
CARE: Your order will come with a polishing cloth to touch up your jewelry pieces when needed. I oxidize (tarnish) and polish the highlights of most of my jewelry pieces to bring out the texture of the prairie grasses and wildflowers. This oxidation will come off if polished with the cloth. When polishing pieces, polish only the raised surfaces to keep the dark oxidation in place.
