Anastasia Pendant in Sterling Silver or Antique Bronze
Inspired by the 1997 animated film Anastasia, I created my own version of the pendant gifted to young Anastasia as a parting gift from her Grandmother Dowager Empress Marie. The back even has "Together in Paris" carved into the back similar to the one in the movie!
The pendant measures 3cm wide and 3.75cm high with the bail, which can accommodate a 4.5mm wide chain. there are 6 green marquis cut rhinestones inlaid into the pendant. The center flower is enameled with red glass enamel to give a beautiful contrast to the piece with the rhinestones!
This pendant is a limited run, so preorders are accepted. Processing time will be 3-4 weeks to make them to order.
I created this pendant design for a fan of the movie for his girlfriend. Took several months to create the master, but worth the work!

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925.
Bronze is an alloy that consists of a mixture of approximately 90% copper and 10% tin. Producing bronze is a less toxic process than producing brass as brass is a combination of copper and zinc, and the manufacturing process often produces zinc oxide which is toxic.
Because bronze contains copper, it can turn your skin green whether you have an allergy or not. Bronze and copper turn your skin green because when the copper reacts with your sweat and the acids from your skin, it produces copper chloride. Copper chloride is a green substance that then rubs off on your skin. If you are prone to sweating, your bronze jewelry will definitely turn your skin green. This chemical reaction can also be prevented by painting any part of the jewelry that comes in contact with your skin with clear nail polish or clear acrylic enamel.
