About The Sterling Silver Necklace with Detachable Brooch Centerpiece

Sterling silver ingot was hand-mill rolled into sheet and drawn into wire for creation of this very elegant necklace with detachable center piece brooch.

Entirely crafted by hand, the intricate Aztec inspired, woven scroll openwork with silver drop punctuation, is saw cut and deeply incised with engraved and filed details,  Silver crop accents, of varied size, are perfectly applied to the centerpiece pin as well as every decorative link to the double hook finish back.

Each element of this complex design is smoothly articulated, using a syster of round links through loops soldered to the back of each ornamental piece.  Hinged hooks, on each front necklace end link, slide neatly and discreetly into loops behind the pin center, holding it secure.

Artistry and superb engineering go elegantly hand in hand to make this stunning adornment as easy to wear, as it is beautiful.

Caveat:  When the pin is worn, the remaining necklace is not designed to be worn by itself.
