A gorgeous piece! I've made a sterling silver, flush gemstone set crescent moon necklace similar to the one Stevie Nicks wears. This has a total of 22 CZ faceted gemstones, 3.0mm round, and bead pave' set within a 1 1/4 inch diameter crescent moon.
It's three dimensional for depth and weight. The top portion, of the moon design, is 4mm in thickness, and the bottom moon serves as a base for the stones to reflect natural light, as like a mirror.
The box chain can be taken out and placed through either end of the pendant, for a waxing or waning effect. This is all hand-made, by me, and requires at least 4-6 weeks notice for completion as it's labor intensive.
