Made by Hand in Davidson, NC, by Bonnie Boardman
This very simple and flattering necklace features a large 10mm 14kt gold fill ball that dangles from 14kt gold filled curb chain. The ball passes through a hand forged 14kt gold fill circle that is hammered with a dappled texture to catch the light. The drop length is approximately 3-5” depending on neck size but the chain can be wrapped around the circle to make it shorter. Total chain length is 20
