Women Coaches, Instructors, Brides
Do you have a team of 8 or more women or girl stars? A dance, flag or cheer team? A gymnastics, softball, volleyball, swim, diving, tennis, basketball or soccer team? A wonderful group of bridesmaids?
Can you cut a few small wires with Joyce Chen scissors or small wirecutters, or jewelers saw?
Can you gently push some 5mm cubic zirconia, or lab grown rubies, or lab grown sapphires into pre-notched settings?
Can you gently squeeze those settings with small flat nose craft pliers from Joann Fabrics or Michaels Crafts to be sure the gems will stay in place?
Can you use a fine nail file, fine emery board, and fine nail shine pad to smooth the nubs where you cut? If so, here are the perfect petite pendants for you to surprise and delight your team.
Measurements: each star pendant is 15 mm wide by 20 mm tall (includes a bail) by 5 mm deep.
Quantity: 8 pendants are cast as one unit for you to cut apart
Recommended gem size: faceted, calibrated 5 mm round (one per pendant)
A lightweight chain is appropriate for these delicate pendants.
(Sorry I have no way to get you the gems, but the 5 mm gems are a very standard size, available in most towns.) Cautionary note about the 'natural silver / rough cast silver' material - it is rough, exactly as it comes from casting. If you are a jeweler with the proper finishing and polishing tools, that is fine, you will be able to do standard polishing. It is labor intensive and a little technical; so I do not recommend this finish for anyone who does not have standard jewelers studio polishing equipment.
